Most Of National Park Service Board Quits In Protest

“Nine of the 12 members of the National Park Service advisory board resigned in protest this week, saying Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has ignored pleas for a meeting and has “set aside” protection of the nation’s natural treasures,” USA Today reports.

“I have a profound concern that the mission of stewardship, protection, and advancement of our National Parks has been set aside,” said Board chairman Tony Knowles in a resignation letter to Zinke.

“Last spring, Zinke suspended the work of more than 200 advisory boards, committees and subcommittees pending a review. Some returned to duty, others have been altered or dropped and still others remain dormant.”
