Secretary Zinke has visited just 8 of the 27 monuments that he has put at risk for reduction or de-designation, but we're out visiting all 21 in the west. Here are the 10 we've experienced so far. Thanks to the many groups working on the ground to protect these places, including: @wildmt, @friendsofthebreaks, @goldbuttenv, @basinrangewatch, @idahoconservationleague, @grandcanyontrust, @columbiariverkeeper, Friends of the Cliffs and Southwest Colorado Canyons Alliance

It is one of the many federally protected landscapes that is now under scrutiny from the current US presidential administration for an unprecedented rollback of its status under pressure from other interests. The American system of preserving large wild landscapes for all generations to come has been an inspiration to every other country on the planet, but now we need to call attention to the forces that aim to darken that light. Resist the attempt to undo decades of progress to protect temples of nature. Add your voice to the conversation if you care. Check the links to find out what you can do.

Built in the year 1965, this was once the largest structure in all of Metturmaradur, Kulithalai. It functioned as the local hospital for 37 years. That was until 2002. The local preschool building right next door collapsed that year. With nowhere else to move, the preschool teachers took the old hospital building as their new home. But the building could do more. So the local ration store took space on another section of the structure. Once a hospital, now a preschool/ration store, the building still stands strong. ~Akshay Balan, Fellow, Batch 8

@usinterior Secretary Zinke, like the archaeological sites found in Colorado’s Canyons of the Ancients? Then you’ll want to save #MojaveTrails in southern California: the archaeological record tells of a human existence in the Mojave Trails area for more than 10,000 years.

Unbelievable. This morning, Trump is defending statues of confederate generals, meanwhile his administration is all too willing to threaten the real symbols of American history and culture: our national monuments. Trump calls confederate statues beautiful and irreplaceable, at same time he is considering letting oil companies drill our national monuments and public lands.

Interior Secretary Zinke announced no changes to California’s Sand to Snow National Monument, continuing with his power play and charade of reviewing our national monuments. It is the National Park Service’s 101st birthday this next week and Zinke is doing a disservice to our parks and public lands protected under this umbrella, playing with their future. 
#sandtosnow is 154,000 acres that stretch from the desert floor near Palm Springs to the peak of Mount San Gorgonio. The monument helps link San Bernardino National Forest, the San Jacinto Mountains and Joshua Tree National Park, connecting a diverse array of ecosystems and protecting a wildlife corridor traversed by mountain lions, bighorn sheep and desert tortoises, among other species.

This land is our land! As Trump tries to shrink or eliminate many of our national monuments, some of our most treasured landscapes are under threat of being lost to mineral extraction or gas and oil development. Dumping trash and destroying ancient rock art was a common occurrence at Nevada’s Gold Butte, so its national monument status in 2016 helped protect this rugged, pastel-hued landscape.

Now, as Trump tries to shrink or eliminate many of our national monuments, Gold Butte again faces threats. Hillerie Patton, a North Las Vegas resident and a former 15-year employee of the @mypubliclands, talks about her love of the region and why it’s important for all Americans to protect Gold Butte and other national monuments.

U.S. Interior Secretary Zinke announced today there will be no changes made to the size or the designation of California's #SandToSnow National Monument. Nestled between Joshua Tree National Park and the San Bernardino National Forest, Sand to Snow is rich in biodiversity and cultural history and will remain protected under the Antiquities Act. However we cannot stop there. California's monuments, including the Mojave Trails, as well as our nation's monuments are still at risk.
