The Big Questions

Environmental issues offen leave us with more questions than answers . . . But confronting them head-on will lead us to a stronger, healthier future.

What is the 30x30 target?

What is "ecologically representative"?

For an area of land or water to be considered “ecologically representative,” it must provide a sampling of all biodiversity and ecosystem benefits within that region. This means it must be home to all or most native plant and wildlife species as well as all ecological processes (such as reproduction). The area should also be able to adapt to natural change.

Why 30%?

Over the last century, biodiversity has come under significant threat due to habitat loss, urbanization and industrialization, pollution, and climate change.
