The U.S. Bureau of Land Management added conservation and restoration to its land management options.

On April 18, 2024, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which manages 100 million hectares of public land in the USA, announced an update to its regulations that will guide more balanced management of these areas now and for the future. Instead of prioritizing fossil fuel and mineral extraction over other uses, the Public Lands Rule will:
* protect clean water and wildlife habitat,
* restore lands and waters that need it, and
* make informed management decisions based on science, data and Indigenous knowledge.

The rule recognizes conservation as an essential component of public lands management, on equal footing with other uses (mining, grazing, recreation, etc.).
