Washington, D.C. — Partnership for Conservation (P4C) President Robert Ramsay released a statement Thursday reacting to the announcement of the “America the Beautiful Challenge” by the Biden administration. Following the release of the America the Beautiful Report in 2021, the new $1 billion challenge “will leverage Federal conservation and restoration investments with private and philanthropic contributions to accelerate land, water, and wildlife conservation efforts across the country.”
“Partnership for Conservation applauds the Biden administration’s continued commitment to protecting America’s natural treasures and recognition of the indispensable role private land conservation must play to achieve a goal of bringing 30 percent of all U.S. land and coastal sea area under conservation protection by 2030,” said P4C President Robert Ramsay. “We continue to encourage the administration and Congress to work together to provide clear guidance and guardrails to strengthen the integrity of all conservation incentives while safeguarding access for Americans of any means to participate in the conservation of critical habitats and lands.”
P4C is a diverse, national coalition of stakeholders working to ensure the long-term availability and integrity of conservation easement donations. Our members include individuals, private companies, land trusts, sportsmen’s organizations, and conservation groups with the shared mission of expanding conservation support for a cleaner, healthier environment.
