A nossa Obrigação Moral

"Lutar contra as probabilidades em nome de toda a vida seria a humanidade na sua mais nobreza".

E.O. Wilson believed that only by coming together around a transcendent goal to protect nature, could we stop and reverse the loss of species. In 2022, over 150 nations adopted the Kunming-Montreal Agreement at the 15th United Nations Convention on Biodiversity.

O acordo Kunming-Montreal, quadro global de biodiversidade (GBF), dá passos extremamente importantes para construir o compromisso de conservar pelo menos 30% da terra, mar e água doce, conhecido como "30×30". As metas no texto final do acordo fazem uma diferença positiva para as espécies que devem agora ser trabalhadas nos planos individuais das partes e das nações, ao identificar "ecologicamente representativas". Áreas chave para protecção, incluindo águas interiores, juntamente com áreas terrestres e oceânicas.

"O apelo de E.O. Wilson era que compreendêssemos tudo o que pudéssemos sobre as espécies. Temos a informação em alta resolução geoespacial para informar quais os 30% que devemos proteger a fim de salvaguardar as espécies".

Further, the agreement establishes commitments to honor and respect how indigenous peoples and local communities steward the bulk of the world’s biodiversity, ensuring these invaluable perspectives inform our common goals and approaches.

“We are at an absolutely crucial turning point for nature — one that requires us to strive for and reach the full suite of key challenges laid out by the GBF: equitable distribution of conservation resources, sustainable land management practices, integration of nature values at all policy levels, and, of course, effective, data-driven conservation of biodiversity.”

Achieving 30×30 is an admirable goal and important progress, but it is not the limit of what we can do, or that needs to be done. The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation stands ready to contribute our science, our leadership, and convening power to help implement, measure, and monitor progress toward these goals in the support of the long-term goal of “Half-Earth.”
