Arizona's Grand Canyon needs your help!

Foreign mining companies are looking to take advantage of a uranium-rich piece of land just outside of the majestic national park. Increasing metal prices worldwide have prompted a rush to claim mining sites and begin extracting immediately.

If these companies move forward with their mining plans, countless plant and animal species will be in grave danger — not to mention the indigenous Native American tribes whose reservations are located near the area.

Uranium mining inevitably contaminates air and precious groundwater. The Colorado River, which runs through the Grand Canyon, supplies drinking water for people living as far away as Los Angeles.

Sign the petition opposing all current and future uranium mining plans in or around the Grand Canyon!

Dear EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy,

I am writing to enlist your help on an urgent issue that could affect millions of people, plants, and animals. Foreign companies are looking to establish mining sites near the Grand Canyon — where the land is rich with uranium.

Uranium mining poses grave environmental problems. Drilling for radioactive substances has proven to contaminate air and groundwater. If the mining plans move forward, the uranium could leach into the Colorado River — a river that supplies water to places as far away as Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Indigenous Native American tribes still inhabit areas around the Grand Canyon and would be in danger of contamination as well.

Rising metal prices have spurred on this rush to drill for uranium and other metals like copper and gold. But that's simply no reason to risk valuable plant, animal, and human life. We must not sacrifice our natural resources in the name of profit.

Please see that a moratorium is placed upon mining in or near Arizona's majestic Grand Canyon.
