We can save most of the Earth’s immense diversity of plant and animal species. Science shows us that nature preserves, though crucial, will not be enough. To succeed in the long term, we must pay attention to our own habitats: our homes and gardens; our parks and work places; our forests and fields. We must carefully design them so that a wide variety of native species can use them successfully.
