Feed the world's hungry while protecting wildlife

“Based on current trends, the World Conservation Union says, the world will lose half its existing wildlife species by 2050. Wildlife preserves comprise 10 percent of the earth's land area, but they're too small and scattered. Their wild species, lacking opportunities for migration and cross-fertilization with outlying populations, are becoming 'islands of dying biodiversity.' The World Conservation Union wants farmers to create wildlife habitats on or near their farms, and link those habitats with existing wildlife preserves.”
