Nature Needs (at least) Half

Nature Needs Half is a movement to protect at least half of the world in an interconnected way.

We are calling for a global deal for nature based on what Nature needs. Nature is the context 

for all the life including humans. We all depend on it for the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. To kill off another species directly through excessive harvesting or indirectly through habitat loss is wrong. It is high time to get our relationship right with the natural world.


Protecting half of nature is more than wishful thinking. Setting aside half of all land and water for nature is not only possible but necessary. Nature Needs Half is a growing global social movement: a network of individuals, groups, scientists, industries, businesses, and governments working towards a shared idea - protecting half of nature in an interconnected way.
