Deb Haaland, new U.S. Secretary of the Interior


A big change from the Trump appointees who seemed more interested in selling off public lands to rich supporters.

Congratulations to @RepDebHaaland on your historic confirmation to lead the Department of @Interior. We look forward to working together to expand equitable access to the #outdoors, conserve #PublicLands, and empower the #hiking community!

Haaland herself is both a hunter and from a traditional hunting family. In her confirmation hearing, she noted that she’d support hunters as well as outdoor recreation in her time as Secretary.

She will pursue Biden’s 30 By 30 initiative— the goal to conserve 30% of U.S. lands and waters by 2030.
