Half of the planet should have a protected status

A growing number of influential scientists and conservationists have been putting this concept forward: getting a protected status to 50% of the Earth!

This would stop drastically the expansion of human activities through deforestation and breaking down land and marine ecosystems.

The idea first emerged in the book “Half Earth: Our Planet’s fight for life” by conservation biologist E.O Wilson.

What was just an idea a few years ago, is now being considered seriously. We know that more than 1 million species are now in danger of extinction.

What do you think of this ambitious goal? Is it doable? Do you think it’s a good idea?
