Humanity needs a Biosphere, our physical bodies totally depend on other organisms, no matter how far we will evolve and how advance we will go with technology. We depend on this Planet for our survival.  So... what if we would devote half of the surface of the Earth to Nature?  www.half-earthproject.org ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒŽ . . . . #earthday #happyearthday #conservationinternational #earthday2018 #planetearth #givebacklove #lovenature #planetearth #savetheplanet #protectearth #extinction #climatechange #halfearth #halfearthproject #edwardowilson #biodiversity
Happy #earthday and Happy 20th Birthday to DLIA and the #smokies ATBI! #smokymountains #gatlinburg #biodiversity #science #research #tennessee #eowilson #halfearth
We're celebrating #earthday with E.O. Wilson and Nigel the Plant! #signedbooks #eowilson #earthday2018 #halfearth#bookstagram @w.w.norton @eowilsonbiodiversityfoundation
It's Earth Day tomorrow so I decided to write a post on what I've be reading recently - Half Earth . The Half Earth project is an idea from biologist and naturalist Edward Wilson . Making half the planets land and sea a conservation area, where humans and nature can live side by side in a protected area . This is the only way to help save our planet as well as all the species and biodiversity from extinction . . Link in bio to the post and my thoughts on this fantastic concept ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ ๐Ÿ’• . @rspb_love_nature @essexwildlifetrust @thewildlifetrusts . #earthday #halfearth #halfearthproject #eowilson #biodiversity #biodiversitywarriors #conservation #biodiversityconservation #biodiversityday #halfearthday #wildlife #nature #ecowarrior #ecofriendly #naturelovers #ecosystems #faunaflora
E. O.  Wilson speaking to a packed audience at the Saint Louis Zoo after receiving the Whitney R. Harris Center World Ecology Award.
Is#Halfearth enough?
"What is Man? Storyteller, mythmaker, and destroyer of the living world." - - - - "For the first time in history a conviction has developed among those who can actually think more than a decade ahead that we are playing a global endgame. Humanity's grasp on the planet is not strong. It is growing weaker. Our population is too large for safety and comfort. Fresh water is growing short, the atmosphere and the seas are increasingly polluted as a result of what has transpired on the land"  Currently reading this insightful and visionary book by Edward O. Wilson, on our planet's fight for life... the sooner we all realise we each have a pivotal role to play in sustaining our planet... the better!  #ourheritagetoprotect #halfearth #collaboratingforconservation #theplanetsfightforlife

Biodiversity is the sustainer of life on earth. As extinction rates are almost 900x faster than before the proliferation of the humankind, and we sitting in the throes of earth’s sixth mass extinction, the first to be caused by one of earth very own creations, we are in dire need of protecting the last wild places that remain as sources and museums of earth’s biodiversity. @intotheokavango is working tirelessly to present the strongest argument for protecting the headwaters of the Okavango, Cuando, Zambezi, and Kwanza systems in Angola to preserve this fountain of precious, clean water and the biodiversity still thriving in this region. We all need to add our voices to this argument to ensure the future of life! #lisima18 #cuando18 #biodiversity #eowilson #halfearth

Kim Stanley Robinson wrote one of my fav sci fi mars trilogy : red mars/blue mars/green mars. Also note that ‘sustainable living & design’ tagline has nothing to do with what KSR has said...as this is a sponsored post, I am guessing it’s somehow for the benefit of realtors who want to destroy all nature and countryside..and build high density match box homes for the care and feeding of Sacramento. If you actually READ the article, then you’d find not only EO Wilson’s Half Earth interesting but also the ideas of Peter Singer. #kimstanleyrobinson #eowilson #halfearth #overstretchedcities #rockerfellerfoundation

Look closely at nature .  Every species is a masterpiece, exquisitely adapted to the particular environment in which it has survived . Who are we to destroy or diminish biodiversity .

We are all Noah now:  These are the lungs of the earth, forests and oceans, and we are destroying them. Deeply, desperately, we are hoping someone will do something before its too late. That someone we are hoping for is YOU & ME. So do we have a plan? The famous biologist  E. O. Wilson has one. "Half-Earth"- a call to action to commit half of the planets surface - land and oceans - to protected zones. Right now the IUCN says close to 15% of earths land and 10% waters are covered by protected areas. If we protect half the global surface, Wilson argues, the fraction of protected species will be about 85% which would life in a safe zone. . . Naive you say? Not so. Naive is thinking we humans will survive without the healthy natural systems that got us here. #conversation #nature #forest #oceans #halfearth #rainforest #ecuador #senegal
'A Letter to the President of Ghana. Your Excellency, Atewa Forest is of global biological importance.

Visited Vegebal Kyushu at Hakata Station in Fukuoka for lunch. As its name suggests, this restaurant focuses on fresh vegetables.  They had a lunch set consisting of a salad base + dressing of choice + bread + soup of the day + drink. You serve yourself from a selection of bread which you can toast, with whipped butter or olive oil as spreads. You can have plain water, vegetable-infused water or filter coffee. . It is very easy to ensure your meal is vegan at this restaurant, even with this simple lunch set.  Of course, you can go a la carte and choose other salad bases, dressings and additional items to add to your salad.  #vegan #veganism #veganfood #veganshare #veganfoodshare #vegansofnyc #veganau #veganaustralia #veganofaus #compassion #animallover #animalrights #plantbased #plantbasedfood #govegan #halfearth #compassion #veganfood #crueltyfree #nomeat #meatfree
