We are joining together to honor E.O. Wilson, protect Half-Earth and leave no species behind!

“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.” E.O. Wilson

Commemorate E.O. Wilson's 92nd birthday, his lifetime commitment to understanding and protecting the natural world and his determination to inspire us to do the same. Celebrate with a gift of "92 for 92" (you choose where to place the decimal) to support the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation's efforts to bring his grand Half-Earth ambition to life.

Please join legendary recording artist, Paul Simon, and the rest of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation leadership in honoring Dr. Wilson on his birthday as we advance the science, education and outreach that will get us to Half-Earth.

All gifts to the Half-Earth Project are being matched through the end of June, thanks to the generosity of Paul Simon. Further, we are pleased to recognize donors at $1,000 and above publicly as Half-Earthers on our web site.

Paul Simon says about his generous support, “It’s simply a responsibility. What’s generous is what nature has provided for us for hundreds of thousands of years.”

Your words and actions will help us ensure Dr. Wilson's legacy: that we leave no species behind. Over the last nine decades, E.O. Wilson has watched our earth’s environment shift and has been a leader in using science to find ways to preserve and protect our planet. His influence—as a scientist, teacher, researcher and author—has profoundly touched our lives and changed the way we view our relationship with nature.

Happy Birthday, E.O. Wilson!
