Help Save Bears Ears: May 26th Deadline


n April 26th, President Trump issued an Executive Order asking Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to conduct a 45-day review of the Bears Ears National Monument. Then on May 11th, the Interior announced a very short 15-day turnaround for public comments about Bears Ears. We now have until May 26th to save the Bears Ears National Monument, a designation that honors Tribes and protects a significant cultural landscape.

This is critical: we are asking you to comment today about what Bears Ears means to you, the American public, and Tribes. Please use our online form to deliver a personalized message to the Administration and the Department of the Interior showing them your support for the monument and your disappoint with any change to its boundaries. The monument is already 550,000 acres smaller than the Tribes’ proposal, and the landscape cannot afford any decrease in protections.

Submit your personalized comments through our form asking for Bears Ears to be honored & protected as is and we will deliver them to the Department of Interior to ensure your voice is heard.
