Nature Needs Half

A recent study published in BioScience outlines a bold new strategy to protect 50% of the earth’s land mass and halt the world’s extinction crisis. Large, connected, properly managed protected areas preserve ecosystem function necessary to support key species and ecosystem services to surrounding human communities. The report proposes a global deal with nature- a companion of the Paris agreement “to promote increased habitat protection and restoration, national- and ecoregion-scale conservation strategies, and the empowerment of indigenous peoples to protect their sovereign lands” Please visit natureneedshalf.org for more information.
