A message from Paula Ehrlich, President & CEO of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and Co-Founder, Half-Earth Project®

We have been starkly reminded of the significant ways that humans are interconnected with the natural world and also how much can be accomplished when we work together.

“With the living world in desperate condition suffering steep declines in all levels of its diversity of life, only a major shift in moral reasoning, with greater commitment given to the rest of life, can meet this greatest challenge of the century.” – E.O. Wilson

Half-Earth Day® brings together people from around the world and across disciplines to share their unique perspectives and thought leadership on how we can work together to achieve the goal of Half-Earth and ensure the health of our planet for future generations.

Half-Earth Day showcases research and progress towards Half, and engages people in what a Half-Earth future looks like and how they can participate.

I am pleased to announce Half-Earth Day will for the first time, be held outside the US in London over two days of events featuring Professor E.O. Wilson and special guest Sir David Attenborough.

Sir David has shared, “People are listening…there just could be a change in moral attitude from people worldwide…to see that self-interest is the past. Common interest is for the future.”
