San Diego

The 30×30 San Diego Region consists of San Diego County. Home to more than 200 threatened plants and animals, San Diego County contains more imperiled species than any other county in the country. Protecting San Diego’s natural areas is critical to safeguarding biodiversity and fighting climate change on a local and international scale – and to achieving the California 30×30 goal.

Regional Lead

During these times of unprecedented biodiversity loss, the statewide 30×30 initiative provides the best shot we have to conserve more of our precious lands and waters, build climate resilience to secure long-term protection, and ensure every Californian enjoys meaningful access to nature. Our region is the most biodiverse in the state and truly has it all – beaches, wetlands, deserts and mountains. We must protect all that we can!”
