Defend the California Desert
As one of 27 national monuments under an unprecedented review by the Trump administration, California’s Mojave Trails National Monument and other public lands in the region are threatened by harmful mining and groundwater drilling and pumping industries. Please sign below to show your Congress leaders you support the preservation of this desert landscape and to safeguard a critical wildlife migration corridor!
Why this place matters
Mojave Trails National Monument protects a stunning array of desert plant life and wildlife habitat across 1.6 million acres in southern California and represents the key last piece in a corridor of fully protected lands between Joshua Tree National Park and Mojave National Preserve.
Mojave Trails National Monument is one of 27 national monuments the Trump administration placed under an unprecedented review in the spring of 2017. While Mojave Trails was legitimately designated by President Barack Obama under the authority of the Antiquities Act, Trump’s team has been working to remove protections to appease extractive industries seeking to increase their operations and profits at the expense of irreplaceable historic and natural resources.
