The Caja deserves our protection
The Caja is a strikingly beautiful place of invaluable cultural, historical and ecological importance. Sadly, the area has long suffered the consequences of inadequate protection. Desecration of Pueblo ancestral homes, ceremonial kivas, and petroglyphs, persistent illegal dumping and unregulated shooting, poaching, irresponsible off-roading, and destruction of endangered species are all imminent threats that must be addressed in order to protect this cherished landscape.
