Advancing ocean protection in the US and bridging the science-policy gap

Erin Eastwood

In 2021, the United States established a national goal to protect at least 30% of lands and waters by 2030 (also known as “30x30”). The Biden Administration’s sweeping vision for achieving this goal - titled Conserving and Restoring America the Beautiful - is centered around tackling three pressing challenges in America: climate change, biodiversity loss, and inequitable access to nature. In this talk, Erin will share an overview of this America the Beautiful initiative, the current status of U.S. ocean protection, and the progress, challenges, and opportunities ahead for advancing effective, lasting, equitable, and inclusive marine protections - ultimately achieving a healthier future for both people and planet. She’ll also share her perspectives on bridging the science-policy gap, and how scientists can help inform ocean policy and management in the U.S.

Speaker: Erin Eastwood, National Ocean Protection Coalition
