David Attenborough says it all in “A Life on Our Planet” and he’s not the only one. According to the Protected Planet Report 2018, after 30 years of conservation efforts only 10% of the Earth’s surface is currently protected.

A growing group of scientists and conservationists worldwide stress that we need to protect 30% by 2030 and 50% by 2050 to survive the ecological and climate emergencies.

This is reflected in Edward Wilson’s Half-Earth project, the #NatureNeedsHalf movement and the 30x30 policies of the UN and the EU. This means we need to accelerate.
