The U.S. territories will be key for achieving the goals of America the Beautiful

Angelo Villagomez, Raimundo Espinoza, and Tina Sablan describe how U.S. territories are key to achieving goals set by President Joe Biden’s America the Beautiful initiative.

Last week, around 100 frontline conservation advocates met in Washington, DC for meetings organized by the America the Beautiful for All Coalition. Participants came from across the U.S. — Maine to the Marianas, Alaska to Puerto Rico and everywhere in between.

The America the Beautiful for All Coalition is the largest and most diverse environmental coalition ever assembled for the most ambitious land and water conservation goal ever set in the United States. We are helping to connect, restore, and conserve 30% of U.S. lands and waters by 2030 by uniting land, freshwater, ocean, wildlife, community, recreation and equity advocates across the nation.
