Description

There’s a serious campaign underway to have 30 per cent of the Earth designated as a giant conservation area. The target date is 2030.

But that’s just the start. The scientists and environmentalists involved in the plan want to eventually lock down half the planet. It’s about protecting habitats and biodiversity.

Cost and logistics are primary considerations. But they aren’t the only ones. Other issues at stake include increasing poverty and indigenous rights.
