Biden Set an Ambitious Goal for Nature. It’s Time He Went After It.

Studies have shown that protecting public lands from development has outsized benefits for combatting climate change and safeguarding biodiversity. By committing to protect 30% of America’s lands and waters by the year 2030, an effort often referred to as 30×30, President Biden has put our nation on a track to meaningfully address the climate and nature crises. Currently, only around 13% of America’s lands have been given some form of official protection. This means that much needs to be done to fully realize President Biden’s goal. Learn more about the 30×30 effort and steps President Biden can take to achieve this goal in this opinion piece.
