The 50th anniversary of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is approaching. Many, myself included, feel it shoulddevils tower be designated as a national monument. This would provide the Arctic Refuge with protection for critical habitat that is home to many types of wildlife: birds, polar bear, musk ox, and caribou, to name a few. The President of the United States can declare an area of the U.S. to be a national monument without the approval of Congress. The power to grant national monuments began in 1906. President Theodore Roosevelt declared Devils Tower in Wyoming the first national monument on September 24, 1906.

If you agree that the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge needs more protection, let President Obama know. Ask him to designate the Arctic Refuge as a national monument.
