What if we destroyed some of the best wild places in America for short-lived commercial gains?
Right now, our last remaining wild places are under tremendous threat from pressures for oil, gas and mineral extraction on public lands. Americans depend on these unique wild lands for their way of life. Energy companies already have more leases than they can use — of the 27 million acres currently under lease to oil and gas companies, more than half are sitting idle. Likewise, the coal industry already has 20 years of reserves under lease.
Right now, our last remaining wild places are under tremendous threat from pressures for oil, gas and mineral extraction on public lands. Some places are just Too Wild To Drill — together we can protect them.

Help us protect these threatened sites
We are challenging President Trump’s rollback of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in court, and the law is on our side. However, the government is moving forward with the process opening these priceless lands to uranium and coal mining, reckless off-road vehicle use and other damage.
The Interior Department is now accepting public comments on President Trump’s monument plans. Protest their use of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante!
