Celebrate the Newly Designated Bears Ears and Gold Butte National Monuments with Patagonia

first_imgOn December 28, 2016, President Barack Obama announced the designation of two new National Monuments in the American West: Bears Ears and Gold Butte.Bears Ears, a distinctive pair of twin buttes in Southeastern Utah that rise 2,000 feet above the surrounding desert plateau, are home to over 100,000 archaeological sites (the majority of which have never been inventoried or studied), including 3,500 year old Puebloan dwellings and other locations held sacred by the area’s local Native American Tribes. For years, this area has faced looting of archaeological and sacred sites, un-managed off-road vehicle usage, and several fierce attempts from oil and gas companies to develop and exploit the land for the fossil fuels that lie below its surface.Gold Butte, located in Southeastern Nevada, has faced many of the same destructive environmental encroachments that Bears Ears has, which, if left unchecked, would have proved disastrous for the habitats of the endangered desert tortoise, desert bighorn sheep, Joshua trees, and the Mojave yucca forest that call Gold Butte home. Much like Bears Ears, Gold Butte is also home to numerous Native American artifacts and petroglyphs (rock art). Community Cider Programs Make Cider and Benefit Charity 1.

These two stunning and valuable landscapes have been added to Obama’s previous roster of newly declared national monuments including the Stonewall Inn, Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, Honouliuli in Hawaii, and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument in Maryland.But before Obama designated Bears Ears a National Monument, Patagonia, the iconic outdoor outfitter, worked for two years with the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coalition (made up of members of the Hopi, Navajo, Ute Mountain Ute, Pueblo of Zuni, and Ute tribes), Friends of Cedar Mesa, and Utah Dine Bikeyah to support the eventual designation of the area as a national Monument. The campaign to preserve Bears Ears began with Patagonia’s film Defined by the Line, a documentary about conservation activist Josh Ewing who transformed his love for climbing into a passion for environmental protection.But Patagonia wanted to do more. So, in an effort to expand awareness of this beautiful and sacred landscape, Patagonia began extending environmental grants to local activist groups and communities, and used its own brand clout to call for the state of Utah to further protect the wilderness area. And thanks in no small part to Patagonia and its coalition of land-protectors, that work has finally paid off with President Obama’s recent designation.“In protecting Bears Ears, the president recognizes the leadership and historyic vision of the Bears Ears Inter-Tribal Coaltiion reprsenting five tribes, and the strong grassroots support from climbers and conservation groups,” said Patagonia CEO Rose Marcario. “We are witnessing the power of community activism, and we thank President Obama for listening and taking action.”“People ahve been scaling rocks in Bears ears for 12,000 years, ” said Patagonia’s Access Fund Executive Director Brady Robinson. “We modern climbers are simply following the routes of those who cared for this sacred land for generations until outsiders brought new threats. Now, Bears Ears is being returned tot hose who treasure it so we can all enjoy this incredible place forever.” 7 Mountain Bike Destinations to Put On Your Bucket List The Best Lodges in the U.S. for Drinking and Relaxing 12 Reasons South Dakota Deserves Your Attention Editors’ Recommendations Why You Should Make Plans to Visit Greenland Nowlast_img read more

UN releases new funding to support critical aid operations in Central African

However, even with this new funding, overall resources in the country remains a mere 14 per cent, said the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in a news release today. “An adequate level of funding of humanitarian activities remains an absolute priority, otherwise, CAR risks relapsing into an acute crisis,” warned the UN humanitarian wing. In the news release, Najat Rochdi, the Humanitarian Coordinator for the country, who released the funds thanked the donors who haves supported response and reiterated her call for increased resources. “It is the peace process consolidation which is at stake,” she noted. The latest tranche will support efforts in Basse Kotto, Mbomou, Nana Gribizi, Ouaka and Ouham-Pendé provinces, where between September 2016 and March 2017, flare-ups in the situation have resulted in massive displacements and severe challenges, including for protection of civilians. The projects targeted in the latest release include responses in the education, protection, health, nutrition and water, sanitation and hygiene sectors as well logistics, shelter and non-food items, coordination and site management. In the Humanitarian Response Plan for CAR, UN and relief partners had appealed for nearly $400 million to support more than half the country’s population who are dependent on humanitarian assistance for their survival. According to UN figures, between February and March this year, the African nation has seen a nearly 6 per cent increase in the number of newly displaced people from 401,072 to 426,100. The security situation in the country too has seen a rapid deterioration. On 8 May, eight peacekeepers from the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission, known by its French acronym MINUSCA, were killed when their convoy was attacked by suspected anti-Balaka elements near Bangassou, about 474 kilometres east of the nation’s capital, Bangui.Clashes between the mainly Muslim Séléka rebel coalition and anti-Balaka militia, which are mostly Christian, plunged the country of 4.5 million people into civil conflict in 2013. read more
