In light of continuing global biodiversity loss, one ambitious proposal has gained considerable traction amongst conserva-tionists: the goal to protect half the Earth. Our analysis sug-gests that at least one billion people live in places that would be protected if the Half Earth proposal were implemented within all ecoregions. Taking into account the social and eco-nomic impacts of such proposals is central to addressing social and environmental justice concerns, and assessing their acceptability and feasibility.
