The “30 by 30” initiative is an effort to establish a goal of protecting 30% of globe’s land and water by the year 2030.
While countries around the world are engaged, “30 by 30” is currently being handled in the U.S. on the state level. As state-specific versions of the legislation are introduced, it will be critically important to work closely with early adopters to consistently include the importance of recreational fishing.
In response to the rollout of the “30 by 30” initiative, a coalition of fishing, hunting and conservation groups have assembled to ensure the interests and contributions of sportsmen and sportswomen, the original conservationists, are part of the process.
As states begin drafting “30 by 30” legislation, count on us to keep you informed about this important issue.
