Success of Albatross Task Force (ATF)

Half the earth for nature
An article on the Guardian website considers renowned biologist E. O. Wilson's provocative big idea: to set aside half of the earth for nature preservation. Wilson's book Half-Earth: Our Planet's Fight for Life is available from NHBS.
