Our core program, the Half-Earth Project, inspires informed collective action to save the biosphere. We lead the development of evidence-based solutions, tools and technologies, like the Half-Earth Project Map and the Species Protection Index, for use by decision-makers and over 150 member countries in the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity to support the preservation of global biodiversity.
Convenings like Half-Earth Day® gather distinguished scientists, conservation leaders, policymakers, educators and the general public to share perspectives on area-based planning, taxonomy, biodiversity monitoring and mapping, and conservation biology practices.
We support next generation and emerging scientists in conservation biology education through our Half-Earth Chairs and Scholars program and taxonomy training through the Half-Earth Project Fellowship in Taxonomy and Biodiversity Exploration. Our education program builds and supports a network of educators across the U.S. and beyond through guided education materials and resources, including institutes and events.
