Since taking office in January, the Trump administration and Congress have made no secret of their anti-environment agenda.
They are already impacting the outlook for wildlife. In March, Congress overturned the Alaska National Wildlife Refuges Rule, a law that prevented the inhumane killing of native carnivores, including bears, wolves and their young, on as many as 76 million acres of national wildlife refuges in Alaska.
More recently, President Trump has called upon the Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, to “review” at least two dozen national monuments that have been designated over the past two decades under the Antiquities Act. This “review” is a thinly veiled effort by the Trump administration to open more federal lands to drilling, mining and development.
