Biodiversity Days are focused on cultivating awareness and promoting understanding as a key foundation for engagement, action and inspired care of our planet. The theme of Biodiversity Days 2017 was Half-Earth, E.O. Wilson’s call to save half the Earth for the rest of life. On March 2-3, 2017 the Half-Earth Project program partners and Half-Earth Council gathered at The Carolina Theatre and the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University for two full days of public lectures, roundtable discussions, and film screenings about how the Half-Earth Project will bring this grand vision and important goal to life. Highlights, videos and photographs from the event are archived below.
The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation is dedicated to expanding knowledge and understanding of biodiversity in all its detail and complexity in order to best care for the living world. We work to promote the protection of biodiversity as a moral imperative and advocate that universal conservation should be one of humanity’s transcendent goals.
