The ongoing transformation of the U.S.’s energy systems creates a compelling opportunity to build the energy infrastructure of the future.
With careful planning, the U.S. could produce needed solar energy and still protect lands important for animal movement and migration.
Energy and mining could convert nearly as much land as agriculture by 2050 – including nearly 80% of all projected expansion into the world’s most intact natural lands.
Maps that display migration data with the human connections and livelihoods can help advance sustainable conservation.

Between 1990 and 2015, humans have modified an area of land greater than the size of Russia.
Industrial-scale tropical deforestation is altering local climate as much as 100 years of global warming under a worst-case emissions scenario.
Scientists have created the first standardized, fine-scale map of global ecosystems, allowing them to better measure the effectiveness of protected areas and identify ecosystems in need of additional protection.
A new analysis identifies global hotspots where the most species are threatened by human impacts.
Protected areas are the most common tool used by conservationists to protect biodiversity. But what if they don’t actually work?
