An ambitious and visionary goal to protect 30 percent of our nation’s lands and waters by 2030
Add your voice supporting a national movement to conserve 30 percent of the lands and waters of the United States by 2030. Known as “30 by 30,” this inclusive and bold vision for safeguarding America’s lands, waters, and wildlife habitat supports the efforts of everyone actively involved in conserving, stewarding, restoring, using, and enjoying nature. President Biden added his support for this science-based effort through an Executive Order issued on January 27, 2021. The 30 by 30 initiative would triple the protected lands and waters nationwide, providing new and more equitable opportunities for outdoor recreation, while also stemming the rapid loss of biodiversity and ensuring that nature-based solutions, such as forests and wetlands, are available to mitigate climate change impacts.
