The worst thing to happen to dinosaurs since extinction

Tell Secretary Zinke

From cave paintings and rock art pieces that are thousands of years old to the dinosaur fossils for which the monument is named, Utah’s Dinosaur National Monument is home to some of our nation’s oldest treasures. But even so, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and the Bureau of Land Management are willing to risk these important natural and cultural resources — in favor of oil and gas drilling around Dinosaur National Monument to benefit just a few companies.

If they move forward with allowing drilling next to the monument, it could be disastrous. As the National Parks Conservation Association argues, it is not possible to “…keep Dinosaur the wild and wonderful place it is if we allow oil rigs on its borders.”

We need to send a strong message to Secretary Zinke that we oppose this threat to Dinosaur National Monument. Will you add your name and join us in fighting to protect it?

Allowing a handful of corporations to drill for oil and gas in the areas surrounding Dinosaur National Monument could mean risking priceless antiquities and buried archaeological treasures.

We can stop this attack on our national monuments. But it’s going to take all of us standing together. Add your name now and tell Secretary Zinke that protecting the ancient treasures of Dinosaur National Monument is more important than lining the pockets of special interests in the oil and gas industry.
