Bears Ears National MonumentTrump's attack on 27 national monuments has begun, and first on his hit list is Utah's Bears Ears National Monument.

Originally proposed by five American Indian tribes, the stunning, 1.3-million-acre monument protects one of the most culturally and ecologically important landscapes in North America — and one of the most scenic, with its remote canyons, mountains, mesas and rivers.

By ordering Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to "review" Bears Ears, Trump's intent is clear: to rescind or shrink the monument and open it for fossil fuel development.

Please join us in telling Trump that his actions are illegal, immoral and dangerous — help us keep Bears Ears protected for future generations.
