CALLING ALL NATURE & OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS!
The time has come and we need to stand up as global citizens to protect and preserve what’s left of the Great Outdoors before it’s too late!
Nature is powerful, yet fragile. Removing protection from public lands destroys old ecosystems, wildlife, and the native people who live there. Once the damage is done, it’s very unlikely to ever be restored. It does not matter which country you live in, eventually these issues impact all of us.
The big problem we’re facing right now is the beginning of stripping away these precious landscapes and natural resources in Utah. A staggering 85% (1.1 MILLION ACRES) of Bears Ears National Monument and 45% of Grand Staircase (800,000 ACRES) is up for grabs for exploitation. The words of the current administration: “We will usher in a bright future of wonder and wealth.”
This land (and the fragile life that depends on it) will be subject to mining operations, drilling, and the exploitation of other natural resources. We are nothing without nature, and we are not separate from it! If we let this happen without a fight, it opens the door to mass annihilation of these landscapes across the world.
But… we are not helpless! With your help, we can collectively pressure the current administration to stop the diminishment of National Monuments now before it’s too late. Here is what we can do as a group:
