SAVE 1 MILLION ACRES – STOP URANIUM MINING NEAR THE GRAND CANYON
Right now, Tea Party radicals in Congress have inserted a rider onto an unrelated budget bill to block creation of a historic 1-million-acre reserve around the Grand Canyon. Help stop this rider with a generous gift to the Grand Canyon Defense Fund.
This fight is so important that a longtime Center for Biological Diversity supporter has pledged to match every dollar that’s donated to this campaign by Monday, August 15. That means if you give by August 15, she'll double your gift and double your impact.
The proposed bill would gut protections on 1 million acres of public lands around the biologically rich Grand Canyon and halt a much-needed 20-year ban on new uranium mining.
The Center has been advocating intensively to stop dangerous uranium mining in the Grand Canyon for years, and we've filed four lawsuits since 2007 to ensure no new uranium mining goes forward. Now we need your help to make sure Tea Party zealots don't undo this hard-won progress.
Make a gift by August 15 to ensure we win this historic battle to save the most biologically diverse national park in the United States from uranium mining. Your gift will be doubled by a generous matching pledge.
We've been rated a four-star charity five years in a row by Charity Navigator, and we put $.86 of every dollar directly toward our species-saving conservation work. You can trust that we'll use your gift efficiently and effectively.
