Statement from Sarah McMillan, Conservation Director of WildEarth Guardians, on the Trump administration’s “Modernization Blueprint” for the Forest Service:

“Today’s announcement from Secretary Perdue directing the Forest Service to prioritize logging, grazing, drilling, mining and all around exploitation of national forest lands comes as another gut-punch from the Trump administration. Fish and wildlife depend on the integrity of forests to survive, and this latest order threatens the survival of a whole range of species already struggling from exploitation and climate change.”

“When Secretary Perdue and the Trump administration talk about ‘modernizing’ the U.S. Forest Service what they really mean is undermining our nation’s bedrock environmental laws to facilitate more public lands logging, drilling, mining and grazing with less citizen oversight and less science.”
