POWELL - Two weeks after a federal judge in Montana ruled the Trump administration's choice to direct the Bureau of Land Management rose to his position illegally, William Perry Pendley told an audience in Cody that the decision has changed nothing.

Pendley paraphrased Mark Twain in saying, "News of my political demise has been greatly exaggerated," while speaking to the Free Roaming Equids and Ecosystem Sustainability Network conference on Tuesday at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West.

The Forestry Corporation of New South Wales could face more than $1m in fines for the alleged illegal logging of trees in protected areas, including koala habitat, in the state’s north.

The NSW Environment Protection Authority said on Thursday it had started five prosecutions against the state-owned forestry agency in the land and environment court for alleged breaches of its licence in a forest near Coffs Harbour.

California will aim to conserve more than 30 percent of its lands and coastal waters by 2030, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said Wednesday in announcing a new executive order. 

The order outlines a series of steps that the state will take, including to “promote biodiversity protection, habitat restoration, wildfire-resilient, sustainably managed landscapes and other conservation outcomes.”
