Grand Canyon National Park needs your help

Grand Canyon National Park needs your help

Public lands surrounding the Grand Canyon are ground zero for a new uranium mining boom. Foreign uranium corporations have staked thousands of new mining claims, have re-opened one old mine, and are trying to open three more.

Uranium mining threatens to industrialize iconic wildlands surrounding the Grand Canyon with dozens of new mines, damage wildlife habitat, and pollute and deplete aquifers feeding the Grand Canyon’s biologically critical seeps, springs and caves.

The Obama administration is now analyzing a 20-year “mineral withdrawal” that would protect up to 1 million acres of the canyon’s watershed from new mining claims and prohibit new mines on most existing claims.

We need your help urging protection for the Grand Canyon’s entire 1-million-acre watershed, not just part of it. Please send an email to the administration and, if you’re in Arizona or Utah, attend a public meeting. Tell them that uranium mining near Grand Canyon just isn’t worth the risk.
