"The Trump administration and Secretary Zinke have shown an alarming disrespect for America's shared public lands and cultural resources, which must be handed down to future generations healthy and intact".

The issue of whether to preserve, shrink or revoke the protected status of two dozen USA national monuments drew more than 2 million public comments ahead of a report to be issued by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to President Donald Trump next month.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke ordered the review of about two dozen monuments to examine whether they were designated with enough public input and to reconsider their size.

To date, more than 1 million comments have been filed nationwide. The public comment period for that order closes today, July 10. Outdoor retailers, as well as hunting and fishing groups, for instance, encouraged members to submit comments in support of maintaining current monument designations. The designation, which was granted after a proposal from five indigenous tribes, meant that oil and gas companies would not be allowed to drill or mine for minerals in some 1.35-million acres of the state.

"We're getting calls daily about the monument".

"The Trump administration's move to review several national monuments for possible reductions in protection is unprecedented and an assault on our nation's collective heritage", Cantwell said.

Now protected under the Antiquities Act of 1906 - legislation that reflected the naturalist passions of Republican President Theodore Roosevelt - the monuments are treasured by many tourists, locals and environmentalists alike, but also eyed by businesses (and their workers) prevented by statute from exploiting their lands and waters.
