- maintaining nature’s ecosystem services by halting the conversion of forests, grasslands, and other native habitats;
- restoring native plant communities at large scales, particularly forest landscapes;
- rewilding regions with native species, especially apex predators, to restore ecological processes and dynamics;
- developing and adopting adequate policy instruments to remedy defaunation, the poaching crisis, and the exploitation and trade of threatened species;

- promoting dietary shifts towards mostly plant-based foods, a.k.a. diet for a small planet;
- increasing outdoor nature and environmental education for children and families, as well as the overall engagement of society in the appreciation of nature;
