President Trump recently signed an Executive Order as a first step towards chopping up public lands and making them more vulnerable to development and mineral extraction. The Executive Order opens up 27 national monuments to the possibility of drilling, mining and other private exploitation.
We need you to contact Secretary of the Interior Zinke by July 10, 2017, and let him know that full protection of national forests, parks, rangelands, and national wildlife refuges should be his priority of the highest order. NOW is the time to nip in the bud any thoughts of diminishing land, waters, and wildlife that belong to us all.
Please contact the Secretary of the Interior right now to voice your support for protecting public lands from drilling, mining, and other private interest development. This is the first test of the Trump administration’s attempt to eliminate protections and turn over control of public land to private interests. We need overwhelming support to show just how significant public lands are to South Carolina’s citizens. Remember that tens of thousands of South Carolinians travel every year “out west” for adventure and inspiration in the great outdoors owned by all of us!
Please encourage others to act by sharing on social media. Forward this link to friends and family who also may be interested in protecting our public lands.
