Citizens from around the world are being asked to contribute recommendations to the United Nations for the protection of Earth’s biodiversity. These recommendations will influence the historic 2020 Convention on Biodiversity. The deadline to submit comments is April 15th, 2019. We need YOUR help to encourage the United Nations to adopt 50% targets for land and seas – that is the protection of half the planet to end the Sixth Mass Extinction and transform humanity’s relationship with wild nature.
Please copy and paste the text below or draft your own comments and send to this email address by April 15th, 2019: [email protected]
Subject: Target 11: Protect Half
To Whom It May Concern,
By the end of this century, four million species are at risk of extinction. Such a catastrophic loss would undoubtedly have devastating consequences for humanity. Biodiversity is the foundation for a stable and thriving planet. Nothing short of unprecedented ambition is sufficient to take advantage of a rapidly closing window of opportunity for action. We still have half left to protect and life on Earth desperately demands this half remains intact (see: An Ecoregion-Based Approach to Protecting Half the Terrestrial Realm). The post-2020 framework must be grounded on the 50% protection target – nature needs half.
