Biden to restore the area of ​​protected areas that Trump cut off

(Washington) The Joe Biden administration continues to manipulate Donald Trump’s decision to cut off parts of their surface area, thus destroying the devastating environmental record of his ancestors.


By restoring “these three” national monuments ” […]President Biden is fulfilling a key promise and upholding the long-standing principle that American national parks, monuments and other protected areas should be protected permanently and for everyone, “the White House said in a statement.

National monuments of the Grand Staircase-Escalante and bear ears, both Utah (west), and the Northeastern Canyons and Seamounts in the Atlantic Ocean in Massachusetts are regaining their original size.

The Grand Staircase-Escalante drops from about 4000 km2 More than 7,500 km2 And the bears ears, reduced to 926 square kilometers, will increase slightly since the Biden administration decided to keep it at 45 km.2 The new total added by Donald Trump is 5,500km2.

The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts watershed is also being rehabilitated and fishing for red crab and American lobster will gradually decline until it is banned on September 15, 2023, the White House announced.

According to the American Press, Joe Biden is expected to sign the decree on Friday.

He maintains the balance sheet of his Democratic ancestor Barack Obama, who created the Bears Years monument in 2016, and Bill Clinton, who created the Grand Stair-Escalant in 1996.

Donald Trump’s decision to cut off these three protected areas has slandered Native American tribesmen and conservationists.
