Finding ways for people to live sustainably on Earth is growing more urgent every year. With the world population projected to reach 9 billion by 2050, there will be even more pressure on deserts, grasslands, forests, and other natural resources to provide food, energy, transportation and housing for a growing, hungry world. These activities further stress already fragmented natural areas that are reeling from deforestation, disrupted migratory routes, environmental pollution and a rapidly changing climate.
If we don’t make changes now, future generations, regardless of where they live, may not have the opportunity to experience the same plentiful planet that we benefit from today.
