CLCV Statement on Obama’s Expansion of California Coastal National Monument

Oakland, CA – In response to President Obama’s expansion of the California Coastal National Monument, California League of Conservation Voters CEO Sarah Rose issued the following statement:

“The expansion of the California Coastal National Monument is great news for our state. Our coast belongs to all Californians and preserving its scenic beauty and biodiversity is crucial for California’s climate and economic future. We thank President Obama for his conservation leadership, and all the local stakeholders and elected officials who made this expansion possible.

With the new presidential administration about to take office, it is crucial we act to make certain our magnificent landscapes and wildlife continue to belong to all of us now, and for generations to come.”
