Our Imperative

The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation’s mission is to reimagine the way we care for our planet.

Given the current extinction rate, half of all species could be lost before the end of the century.

Propelled by the ingenuity and optimism of our partners and communities around the globe and guided by the vision of world-renowned scientist E.O. Wilson, we are powering conservation action that ensures we leave no species behind.

Discover the Half-Earth Project, our core program designed to inspire informed collective action to save the land and waters upon which global biodiversity depends.
