The Map of Life

Date:Oct 13, 2017

The Map of Life at Yale University, headed by Walter Jetz, focuses on supporting conservation solutions by assembling and integrating a wide range of knowledge about species distributions and their dynamics over time. We are honored to have The Map of Life working with the Half-Earth Project to provide scientific leadership in support of our Half-Earth mapping efforts. With their assistance, we are developing multiple layers of local, regional, and global data regarding biodiversity status, conservation priorities, and human impacts to create a dynamic, interactive mapping tool that engages people everywhere in what places are important for protection of biodiversity.
