Make a public comment to protect national monuments from Trump!
- by: Greenpeace US 1
- recipient: Secretary Ryan Zinke, U.S. Department of the Interior
Trump recently released an executive order demanding a "review" of dozens of our country's national monuments — putting these incredible places at risk of losing their protections and being opened up to drilling, mining, and fracking.
Monuments at risk range from the awe-inspiring Giant Sequoia in California to the beautiful Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah. In addition to being ecological wonders, many of these protected places hold strong cultural importance to local and Indigenous communities and provide important economic benefits in the form of tourism and outdoor recreation, all of which could be ruined by fossil fuel extraction.
It's up to us to raise our voices and demand that the Interior Department protect public lands from greedy oil and gas developers seeking to reap private profits from our shared public treasures. Submit a public comment today to the Department of the Interior to protect our country's national monuments! Comments must be submitted before July 10 so send your message now!

Dear Secretary Zinke,
I urge the Department of the Interior not to strip protections from our country's national monuments.
These lands and waters should be enjoyed and protected for generations to come -- not carved up by fossil fuel companies for short-term profit. Allowing fossil fuel companies access to our country's national monuments would hurt communities that rely on outdoor tourism, destroy priceless cultural sites, and permanently damage or destroy unique landscapes and ecosystems.
