Land & Wildlife Conservancies
A Land Conservancy, also known as land trust, is a community-based, nonprofit organization dedicated to the permanent protection and stewardship of natural and working lands for the public good.
Wildlife Conservation is the practice of protecting plant and animal species and their habitats. As part of the world’s ecosystems, wildlife provides balance and stability to nature’s processes. The goal of wildlife conservation is to ensure the survival of these species, and to educate people on living sustainably with other species.
