DENVER — The Biden administration’s ambitious plan to conserve 30 percent of the nation’s lands and waters by 2030 in a newly unveiled plan, dubbed Conserving and Restoring America the Beautiful, will help restore degraded wildlife habitat, increase hunting and fishing opportunities, and tackle the climate crisis by providing much needed investments in our public, private, and Tribal lands and waters.
“For more than a century, hunters and anglers have played an important role in conserving our nation’s lands, waters and ecosystems. President Biden’s conservation and restoration plan provides a national framework to scale up locally-led conservation and restoration projects, which will enhance sporting opportunities and biodiversity, and begin to tackle the climate crisis,” said Aaron Kindle, director of sporting advocacy at the National Wildlife Federation. “Hunters and anglers are encouraged by this conservation blueprint and look forward to working with the administration and our partners to see these improvements come to life.”
