We will use this group to document and conserve areas of the Earth that are critical for astrobiology research. Most of us know that there are field sites of significance for astrobiology research all around us, but there is no repository listing these locations or documenting their significance. We will use this group to coordinate our efforts as we describe where these sites can be found, what kind of research can be conducted at these sites, and why they must be protected for future generations. The initial documentation efforts will be a prelude to more advanced forms of conservation such as land easements, the securing of development rights or solicitation for formal protected status within existing conservation frameworks (e.g., state or national park status).
If you enjoy conservation, and you love astrobiology, please join us!
