they are supposed to be protected. Please send your letters
National Park Service
1849 C Street, NW
Washington, DC 20240

- The National Park System should provide safe refuges

- Religous observances should be respected, but they
should not provide excuses for violating federal laws
such as the Endangered Species Act.
- This rule will open the floodgates, subjecting more
animals and parks to the traditions of other special
Thank you for letting the National Park Service know that
this proposal is unacceptable.
