Save the Grand Canyon wolf in the USA


This video from the USA says about itself:

Endangered Gray Wolf Could Be Roaming the Grand Canyon

3 November 2014

According to conservationists, a wayward gray wolf has been spotted several times this month around the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. The wolf, which is wearing an inactive radio collar, could be the first of its species to roam Arizona in 70 years; gray wolves were exterminated from the state in the 1940s. Federal authorities are investigating the sightings.

From the Center for Biological Diversity in the USA:

  2. Lola — this is scary. The Nuclear Energy Institute — the lobbying arm of the nuclear industry — just put out a call to the Trump administration to invoke an obscure provision in the Cold War-era Defense Production Act that opens the Grand Canyon region to uranium mining.

    The NEI’s letter calls on the president to “lift current federal land withdrawal restrictions prohibiting access to high grade domestic uranium deposits.”

    This is an all-hands-on-deck emergency. Right now, pro-environment lawmakers are pushing to block uranium mining on public lands like this. If they can get it to a vote, it’s a game changer — we could protect millions of acres of public lands.

    We need to raise the stakes on this vote. That means organizing calls, rallies, protests, demonstrations, and grassroots lobbying. We need your help.

    Every donation made by September 30 will be TRIPLE MATCHED by a generous LCV donor. We’re still $110,000 short of our goal — can you pitch in?

    This is an outrageous attack on our precious and pristine public lands — can you even imagine mining for uranium in the Grand Canyon region? Despicable! Please — donate to the League of Conservation Voters today. Even $5 will help »

    For millennia, indigenous communities, including the Havasupai, Hualapai, Hopi, and Navajo Nation communities, have lived in and around the Grand Canyon. Any move to expand uranium mining within the Grand Canyon would risk destroying these sacred lands and exposing the water supply of indigenous communities to toxic uranium pollution.

    This is how we stop it: Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rep. Grijalva has introduced the Grand Canyon Centennial Protection Act that will protect 1 million acres of land around the Canyon from uranium mining.

    If this bill makes it through, it will block the uranium mining plan. We need to get it to a vote.

    We CAN stop uranium mining in the Grand Canyon but only if we push Congress to act. Please, please, please rush a donation to the League of Conservation Voters. Even $5 will have an impact!

    Opening the Grand Canyon to Big Polluters — just like gutting protections for Bears Ears National Monument and ignoring the concerns of indigenous communities regarding the Keystone XL pipeline — is yet another example of the Trump administration’s disregard for indigenous rights and sovereignty.

    Thank you for your generous support.

    Sincerely,

    Gene Karpinski
