Twenty-seven of our national monuments are under attack.
Over 20 years of national monument designations are now under review by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. On August 24th, Zinke will make a “recommendation” to Trump on which national monuments to shrink or rescind.
These imperiled monuments -- spanning from Maine’s Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument to California’s Giant Sequoia National Monument to Hawaii's Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument -- celebrate our natural and cultural history. With each designation, the public has already shown widespread support for the protecting our forests, deserts, canyons, and underwater wonderlands. We cannot allow any efforts to rollback protections for our public lands and waters.
Tell Interior Secretary Zinke our national monuments must remain protected for generations to come.
