Defenders of Wildlife Statement: Biden 30x30 Report

WASHINGTON -

In support, Jamie Rappaport Clark, president and CEO of Defenders of Wildlife, issued the following statement: 

"We applaud today’s action by the Biden administration to advance the conservation of  at least 30% of our lands and waters by 2030," said Jamie Rappaport Clark, president and CEO, Defenders of Wildlife.

"As a result of escalating threats, including climate change and habitat destruction, 1 million species around the world may face extinction. Science tells us that we need to change course to save species‒and ourselves‒and that achieving the 30x30 goal is a key part of the solution. The recommendations from the administration recognize that we must engage all interested constituencies to create enduring solutions for climate and biodiversity. We are excited to support this growing local, national and global effort."
