Trump Guts Protections for Wetlands, Endangered Species

Center for Biological Diversity

WASHINGTON - In his latest move to weaken environmental protections nationwide, President Trump signed a new executive order today that will make it easier to destroy, pave over and pollute thousands of wetlands across the United States, especially in the arid, interior western states. Wetlands are among the most important ecosystems in the country, providing clean fresh water, flood control and essential habitat for birds, fish and other wildlife, including endangered species.
