30 x 30:

A Bold Vision to Protect Our Lands and Waters

A staggering 86 percent of voters support setting a national goal to protect 30 percent of America’s lands and waters by 2030 (the 30×30 Goal). Why? We recognize that we’re losing natural space to development at an alarming pace. 

Currently, only 12 percent of our nation’s lands are protected. Every 30 seconds, we lose about a football field’s worth of nature in areas without protection.

Hundreds of scientists agree that protecting 30 percent of our planet’s land and water resources is a necessary step we must take in order to leave a healthy, liveable environment for future generations. 

Here in Colorado, we see the 30×30 Goal as an important path to conserve nature, strengthen our communities, and improve public health. It is a bold but achievable goal, with your help, we can get there.
