In Our Hands by Anna McNaught

America and the world are racing to protect 30 percent of our lands, waters, and ocean by 2030 in order to prevent mass extinctions and bolster resilience to climate change. To achieve such a bold goal, we need to spread awareness of the challenges facing our natural world and inspire humans to preserve it. As we embark on the ocean decade and countdown to 2030, art and creativity can provide the catalyst we need.
