Teddy Roosevelt was a huge activist for environmental conservation. He did not create the Nationl Park System, as many people believe, but he did create the National Wildlife Refure System. The Antiquities Act of 1906 enabled him to declare areas of land national monuments without getting Congress’ approval. This made it easier to protect land, which is why he was able to put 230 million acres under protection.
Jimmy Carter signed many environmental laws as well. Some include the Soil and Water Conservation Act, the National Energy Act, the Endangered American Wilderness Act, and the Alaskan National Interest Lands Conservation Act, which conserved more than 100 million acres of land.
