Point Blue's 160 scientists develop nature-based solutions to climate change, habitat loss, and other environmental threats to benefit wildlife and people.

A Note from Secretary Crowfoot

"To conserve 30% of California’s lands and coastal waters by 2030 (30x30), the audacious is not only possible, it is necessary. Partners like Point Blue bring the science and analysis that will help California’s 30x30 initiative meaningfully protect and restore biodiversity, expand access to nature, and mitigate and build resilience to climate change. We have to move at a pace and scale like we never have before, and we look forward to working with Point Blue in showing the world that people and nature can thrive together."
