The Half-Earth Project ®

Threats to the natural world are multiplying. Species are going extinct at an alarming rate.

“Unless we move quickly to protect global biodiversity, we will soon lose most of the species composing life on Earth.” —E.O. Wilson.

There’s a solution. It’s called the Half-Earth Project. If we conserve half the land and sea, we can still safeguard the bulk of our planet’s biodiversity.

But what would Half-Earth look like? How would we get there?

Celebrating People Inspiring People to Care for our Planet

"Earthrise" by Amanda Gorman

What can we do?
Open your eyes.
Know that the future of
this wise planet
Lies right in sight:
Right in all of us. Trust
this earth uprising.
All of us bring light to exciting solutions never tried before
For it is our hope that implores us, at our uncompromising core,
To keep rising up for an earth more than worth fighting for.

—Amanda Gorman, inaugural National Youth Poet Laureate
