CI's 25-15 petition - consider signing!

Conservation International is proposing the 25-15 petition with its goal of protecting and effectively managing at least 25 percent of Earth's land and inland waters and 15 percent of marine ecosystems by 2020.

Currently, only 13.9 percent of the world's terrestrial areas are under formal protection. Less than 1 percent of the oceans are protected.

This October, world leaders will gather in Nagoya, Japan, for negotiations on the global Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The attendees of this meeting have the power to take binding action to preserve life around the world.

CI will collect your names and take them to Nagoya, Japan to demonstrate that people around the world – like you – support the protection of ecosystems and their biodiversity, essential to the future of all life on Earth.
