”Half-Earth Day” set for Oct. 23; promotes drive to designate 50% of Earth’s surface as PAs

This Monday, October 23, marks the first-ever Half-Earth Day.


The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and National Geographic timed the event to occur exactly half a year after Earth Day (April 22). But Half-Earth Day also gets its name from the biodiversity conservation initiative spearheaded by renowned biologist and conservationist Edward O. Wilson, discussed in his 2016 book, Half-Earth: Our Planet’s Fight for Life.
