The State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) has partnered with the Half-Earth Project to lead the Species Exploration and Biomimicry components of the Global Biodiversity Census initiative. As a cutting-edge leader in the field of taxonomy, Quentin Wheeler, Dean of SUNY ESF, is convening museums and botanical garden curators to accelerate the discovery, description, and revision of species, the scientific study of their natural history, and the search for nature-inspired sustainable solutions. As a partner of the Half-Earth Project, SUNY ESF will drive creation of knowledge required for successful biodiversity conservation, resource management, and a truly sustainable future.
