World Leaders: Protect half our planet

To world leaders:

We global citizens are deeply concerned by scientists warning that ecosystems critical to sustaining life on Earth could collapse in our lifetimes. We call on you to meet existing targets to protect biodiversity, forge a new agreement so that at least 50% of our lands and oceans are protected and restored, and ensure our planet is completely sustainably managed. This must take into consideration the needs of human development and have the active support of indigenous peoples. This long-term goal for nature can restore harmony with our home.

This is beyond worrying! A major global study just found that every insect on the planet is on track to be wiped out, causing a collapse of life on Earth -- including us!

We know in our bones that our fate depends on our planet. We ARE nature. And to save it, we must be its voice!

Scientists are offering a beautiful vision to defend humanity and nature -- putting half the planet under protection. And right now, the UN, France, Germany, Canada and others are about to hold talks to consider the idea ahead of a global summit on extinction. We have to get them on board!

Let’s call on these leaders to back protection for half the Earth
, and deliver polling, science, and messages from Avaazers everywhere to inspire the leadership our people and planet need! Sign now - the meetings that could save life on Earth start in days!
