What If We Set Aside Half the Planet for Wildlife? 5
About 65 million years ago, a mass extinction event occurred, wiping out more than 75% of all species on Earth. There have only been 5 mass extinctions in our planet's 4.5 billion year history. But the next one has already started. By the end of this century, one in six species on Earth could be gone. Will humans go with them?

“Animals need us as much as we need them”

Not true at all. If humans disappeared most life on this planet would flourish compared to how it is now. But if they disappear we’re screwed. We need them way more than they need us.

What if instead of making 50% of earth human free, we make every country 50% free of humans, only 50% of the land can be used for civilization rest nature/wild reserve, that could work better every one has clean air that way

Humans : What if we keep destroying the nature like we do now?
Earth: Well, that's a story for another extinction..!!

If this ever gets implemented for real and if my half is chosen, I'm even willing to vacate my homeland and relocate. It is definitely worth the sacrifice.
