Celebrate Edward O. Wilson's 90th Birthday With the Gift of Species Data

“It’s always been a dream of mine, of exploring the living world, of classifying all the species and finding out what makes up the biosphere.” - Edward O. Wilson

In honor of Edward O. Wilson’s 90th birthday and in celebration of his lifelong commitment to species conservation, we ask you to do something simple, enjoyable, and beneficial for the planet. Go outside today, bring friends and family members, head to a national park or a nearby wooded area, go into your backyard or to the park down the block, and collect species data. Then, share this data with the Half-Earth Project in Ed’s honor.

“Each project is special unto itself. Each requires knowledge and love of the local environment shared by partnerships of scientists, activists, and political and economic leaders. To succeed, it needs every bit of their entrepreneurship, courage, and persistence.” - Edward O. Wilson

Every observation makes a difference. Be a part of the Half-Earth solution. Celebrate Edward O. Wilson’s birthday with a gift of data to the Half-Earth Project. Protect species. Protect the planet.

I added all of my observations made in Rock Creek Park and all of my observations of ants from anywhere in the world, in honor of Ed and this place and creatures that were so important in his early life. Happy Birthday, Edward O. Wilson!
