Say NO to Big Oil in Giant Sequoia National Monument

Dear Secretary Zinke,

I am extremely disappointed that Trump has signed an Executive Order aimed at undermining our national monuments, including Giant Sequoia. Giant Sequoia National Monument boasts about half the sequoia groves left – including one of the ten highest. We must keep it protected. I strongly urge you to oppose any efforts to eliminate or shrink Giant Sequoia or any of our national monuments.

Our national parks and public lands and waters help define who we are as a nation by telling the story of our historical, cultural, and natural heritage. These incredible resources are also critical to our economy - driving tourism, outdoor recreation, and a quality of life associated with healthy public lands.

Any honest review of a national monument should be transparent, engage the public, and consider the decades of community engagement behind many of these monuments.

I strongly oppose this and other attacks on national parks, monuments, public lands, and waters. I urge you to support our public lands and oppose any efforts to eliminate or shrink national monuments.


Why is this important?

Last month, Donald Trump signed an Executive Order threatening Giant Sequoia National Monument with fossil fuel development.

The Department of the Interior is accepting public comments on whether to let Big Oil destroy Giant Sequoia. So we need you to speak up NOW and help save this special place!

Tell the Department of the Interior: NO fossil fuel development in Giant Sequoia!
