How can we protect our lands?
我们所做的: From the first days of the Trump administration, we mobilized to defend our public lands and waters from oil and gas drilling, logging and deep-sea mining that would devastate these natural wonders. And when the Biden administration came into office, one of our first requests was that it restore protections for these places. 2021年10月8日, President Biden delivered a conservation win for tribal groups, environmentalists and outdoor enthusiasts, and restored protections to these special places.
在接下来的几个月里: We’re closely monitoring legislation in Congress that would strengthen the Antiquities Act, the law that gives 总统 the authority to designate national monuments for protection.
从长远来看: 最终, we need to win enough hearts and minds to our point of view so daring to weaken protections for America’s public lands would be a career-ending move for any elected official. That’s one more reason why our work to raise awareness and engage people in action matters.
