Take Action: Help Protect the Grand Canyon From Uranium Mining

July 20th, 2011

Congress is poised to gut protections on 1 million acres of public lands around the Grand Canyon — if we don’t take action right now to protect this national park from uranium mining.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION HERE!

The Grand Canyon is ground zero for a new uranium-mining boom. New mining would industrialize iconic wildlands and threaten irretrievable pollution of aquifers and the biologically rich springs and creeks they feed — springs that harbor up to 500 times more species than adjacent lands.

In June, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar visited Grand Canyon, announcing that he favors enacting a 20-year ban on new mining across Grand Canyon National Park’s 1-million-acre watershed.

Days later, a bill was introduced in Congress that would strip the Obama administration’s authority to enact those protections — sacrificing the Grand Canyon’s magnificent lands for more destructive uranium mining. The House of Representatives votes on that bill in late July or early August.

PLEASE TAKE ACTION HERE!

    Please do not mine the uranium. Please do not export the uranium. And, let’s make it to the world not used for nuclear power generation.
