The Vermont Alliance for Half-Earth is a group of Vermont residents and conservationists, including NBNC staff, who have come together to advance biodiversity preservation in the state. The Alliance gets its inspiration from the legendary biologist E. O. Wilson, his Half-Earth Project, and its vision to conserve half the Earth’s oceans and land for nature. Working with partners around the state, the group aims to demonstrate how all Vermonters can protect biodiversity. From educator institutes to bioblitz events, NBNC’s partnership with The Vermont Alliance for Half-Earth has yielded formative new opportunities to engage Vermonters in the natural world.
We are pleased to share in celebrating the launch of their new website. Check it out for inspiration, photographs, and stories on how to help preserve biodiversity at:
