Leaders need high-quality information.

When it comes to producing the things people need most – air, water, healthy soils, and a stable climate – nature does it best. Setting aside enough space for nature to continue to evolve and flourish is what we are committed to achieving. But in a world full of urgent human needs and competing priorities, that isn’t always easy. That is why the Nature Needs Half movement relies on world-class contemporary and traditional science to inform decisions about conservation priorities.

Scientists produce high quality research that helps informs coalitions and policy-makers priority locations to maximize the protection of life.

Below is a list of strategies scientists use to support nature:

The Quick Response Biodiversity Fund protecting rare and critically endangered habitats.

Policy decisions that maximize the conservation of Earth’s biodiversity.

Feasible pathways for more interconnected landscapes.

The creation of common conservation objectives that will lead to 50 by 30.


Half is Possible

In 2017, Eric Dinerstein et al. published an analysis concluding half is possible, and providing a roadmap for the protection of all of Earth's life forms.
