    By Marguerite Royo May 18

    In Jan. 2021, President Biden issued an executive order that pledged to conserve at least 30% of lands and waters in the U.S. by 2030. The goal of this 30x30 initiative is to address the climate crisis by safeguarding biodiversity, protecting clean air and water, increasing carbon sequestration, protecting habitats, and promoting greater climate resiliency. Research shows that this is the minimum level of conservation needed to mitigate the worst effects of climate change globally.
