Petition to keep our public lands public

PETITION: Don't make Public Lands Private/>
Target: U.S. Congress

Our most treasured public lands and wild places could soon go up for sale. A majority in the U.S. Senate has already voted to allow the sale or giveaway of our federal lands, other than national parks and monuments. National forests, seashores, wildlife refuges, and recreation areas are all at risk of being sold to the highest bidder. These lands constitute much of what's left of the nation's natural and historical heritage — lands that protect our drinking water, provide wildlife habitat, and offer people the chance to connect with nature through camping, hiking, fishing, and more. In the first two months of this year alone, several members of the U.S. House of Representatives put forth three bills that would allow states to take control of federal lands — including up to 2 million acres of national forests — and auction it off for mining, clear-cut logging, drilling and road construction, with no regard for environmental protection. We can't sit by and let our lands be destroyed.

Public lands belong to the general public, not to the government to destroy.

We are running these poor animals out of their homes, then complaining when there are critters getting into trash and whatnot.These lands give many wild animals a sort of sanctuary or home.
