Ryan Zinke -- a Congressman with a lifetime record of voting against the environment 96% of the time according to the League of Conservation Voters -- is now the head of the Department of the Interior. His confirmation jeopardizes the future of our public lands, and the people, wildlife, and economies that depend on them.
Now that our public lands face an uncertain future, many of the places President Obama protected are threatened once again. One of the first efforts by this pro-dirty fuels administration could be to jeopardize or even undo protections for Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah. These lands are sacred to five Native American tribes with ancestral and spiritual ties to these lands. We cannot allow this work to be undone.
Ask your members of Congress to tell Interior Secretary Zinke that Bears Ears National Monument must not be plundered for the financial benefit of the few.
