The Atlas for the End of the World

Hotspot Cities: cities of 300,000 or more people projected to sprawl into 
remnant habitat in the world's biological hotspots

The Atlas for the End of the World  is a web-based platform that uses maps and infographics to illustrate the effect of urbanization on the world's ecological hotspots. The project illustrates the difference between the 1992 United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity target of 17 percent (global terrestrial) protected area by 2020 and what is actually protected in the world's 36 biodiversity hotspots today.
