Restore and Protect Grand Canyon & the Greater Grand Canyon Ecoregion

Grand Canyon National ParkThe Greater Grand Canyon Ecoregion encompasses a diverse, wild, and remote landscape and includes two national monuments, two national forests, numerous wilderness areas, and the crown jewel of our national park system: Grand Canyon National Park. It provides essential wildlife habitat to many species, including the desert tortoise, the endangered California condor, the northern goshawk, and the Kaibab squirrel, a species found nowhere else.

The rapid growth of Arizona and the nearby states, coupled with the implications of climate change and intensive resource use, pose significant threats to this important landscape– uranium mining, development, off-road vehicle use, noisy air tours, old-growth logging, and water diversions will significantly harm this area if not addressed. This project works for healthier public lands in the region to ensure a resilient habitat for the diverse species that inhabit these lands; world-class recreational opportunities for visitors; and adequate resources for surrounding communities.
