I approach this job in the same way that Boy Scouts taught me so long ago: leave the campsite in better condition than I found it.
Letter from Secretary Ryan Zinke

A great motto, but how does this square with your recent order that’ll increase toxic lead in our soil, water, and wildlife? Lead poisoning devastated national symbols like bald eagles and California condors. And what about opening up new areas for oil and gas leases? That won’t leave the land in better condition either.
