Convention on Biological Diversity has proposed conserving 30 percent of Earth’s land and oceans by 2030. Formal protection from development could save vulnerable ecosystems and mitigate the effects of climate change.

A hummingbird may move to a new location, but the plants it depends on may not, for example. Still, says Rachael Gallagher, a biologist at Australia’s Macquarie University in New South Wales, who was not involved in the study, the paper “provides an evidence base for those advocating to expand the world’s protected areas.”
