The 15,874 letters Save Our Environment supporters sent urging the Obama administration not to cave to the mining industry’s attempts to open the Grand Canyon to hazardous and destructive uranium mining worked!
On January 9th, Secretary Salazar announced a 20-year ban on new uranium mining that will preserve the Canyon's landscape, protect critical wildlife habitat and local communities, and safeguard clean drinking water for millions of Americans.
Please send a quick thank you note to let Interior Secretary Salazar and President Obama know you appreciate their commitment to protecting the Grand Canyon and putting its health before the profits of the mining companies.
While all the organizations participating in the Save Our Environment Action Center share the common goal of
protecting the environment, individual groups can, and sometimes do, differ in their approaches to specific issues.
