What is 30×30?

In 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom issued Executive Order N-82-20, which committed to conserving 30% of California’s lands and coastal waters by 2030 as part of a broader effort to fight climate change, protect biodiversity, and expand access to nature for all Californians. In 2022, the California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) released Pathways to 30×30: Accelerating Conservation of California’s Nature, which details strategies and opportunities for achieving the 30×30 target.

Visit our new 30×30 webpage to learn more about: 

  • How much of our coastal waters are already conserved. 
  • The state’s strategies for achieving the 30×30 target in coastal waters. 
  • Ways to stay updated and get involved.
