Proteger metade da Terra para toda a vida com o Dr. Dennis Liu
25 de Abril das 17:30 às 18:30
Junte-se virtualmente ao Northeast Wilderness Trust para uma conversa com o convidado especial Dennis Liu, PhD; assista a partir do conforto da sua própria casa e participe num debate de perguntas e respostas.
The goal for global conservation is Half, inspired by E.O. Wilson’s call to protect half of our precious planet for the rest of nature. Although the “America the Beautiful” campaign, the US implementation of 30 x 30, is a good start, it will not be enough to reverse the current extinction crisis and bring humanity into the safe zone. At this time, the US currently has about 15% of its land under formal protection for biodiversity, which matches the global percentage. The Half-Earth Project’s goal of 50% is not reachable in the US through state and federal action alone. It must include conservation by non-profits, NGOs, and individuals—including the forever-wild lands Northeast Wilderness Trust protects. Half-Earth’s goal is to leave no species behind. Dennis Liu, PhD will feature stories of charismatic creatures like hummingbirds and dragonflies, and discuss how protecting one species often benefits others. He’ll also talk about what each of us can do as individuals and as communities to support all of the miraculous species we love and need.
