This presentation looks at the Nature Needs Half conservation movement, which, as First Nations people have always known and science also proves true, says that for a healthy, sustainable planet, we at least need half of our lands and waters protected. It notes movement from the current commitments of 17% for wild lands and 10% for water currently being used by policy makers as a first step towards solid conservation efforts and states that parks have a crucial role to play in supporting the Nature Needs Half movement.
