Biden Restores Protection for National Monuments


President Biden has signed proclamations that have reinstated the original boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments, and restored protections to the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. This is considered a major victory for both Indigenous people and environmental groups alike. Biden fought against the NRDC for these changes, who claim that presidents should not hold the power to “roll back notional monument designations”.
