The Half-Earth Project Map is a high-resolution, dynamic world map and decision-support tool that guides where place-based species conservation activities are needed the most to save the bulk of Earth’s species.
New Release – October 2022
The latest update to Half-Earth Project Map includes improved resolution with 1KM species richness and rarity layers in North America, a new carbon layer showing how to protect species and address climate change, marine data, and new personalization tools to support policymakers.
Half-Earth is a call to conserve half our planet’s lands and seas in order to reverse the species extinction crisis.
The Half-Earth Project is using the latest science and technology to map thousands of species around the world. As a resource for everyone, this information is critical to help realize the grand ambition of Half-Earth.
The global network of conservation areas plays a key role in safeguarding species. Yet, many species remain insufficiently protected.
Global conservation protections must be based on species information, but also must honor the interests of indigenous people and local communities, and work with them to develop locally appropriate conservation management plans.
The innovative science and research developed and in-part, funded by the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation is having a significant impact on our goal to preserve global biodiversity. High-quality science is critical, for example, to informing global initiatives like protecting 30% of land and seas by 2030 (30×30) on the way to Half-Earth, or the America The Beautiful Plan to protect biodiversity and address climate change in the US.
Before we’ve lost irreplaceable species and ecosystems forever.
Join us and stay up-to-date on progress toward this grand goal.
