On April 26, President Donald Trump signed an executive order mandating the unprecedented review of 27 national monuments nationwide - an action that could directly affect fish and wildlife habitat conservation, hunting and fishing opportunities and the future management of 11.3 million acres of our public lands and waters under the Department of Interior.
As outlined in this report, when done right, the designation of National Monuments can be a useful tool to safeguard important fish and wildlife habitat, while maintaining traditional hunting and fishing access. Please join us in urging the Trump administration to:
- Maintain needed fish and wildlife habitat protections for these important landscapes;
- Support future public hunting and fishing access within the national monuments under review
- Uphold the integrity of the Antiquities Act as a tool for ensuring the permanent conservation of public lands and waters valued by Americans and critical to our fish and wildlife.
