Should we set aside half of Earth to save our wildlife?


Recommended Posts

Populations of all kinds of wildlife are declining at an alarming speed. If we don't stop this, scientist warns that humanity could soon be left with a planet bereft of actual wildlife and only inhabited by ourselves and a few domesticated animals.

In an effort to stop such a grim future from happening, some conservationists are proposing a radical solution: make 50% of the planet a nature reserve. “That may seem a lot – if you think the world is a just a place for humans to exploit,” Harvey Locke from the organisation Nature Needs Half said. “But if you recognise the world as one that we share with wildlife, letting it have half of the Earth does not seem that much.”
