Whether involved in farming, ranching, forestry, mining, energy development or other businesses, this book is for you as it showcases the conservation legacy and potential of America’s private lands. It provides a comprehensive look at the laws and regulations associated with wildlife conservation, and gives readers instruction and tools on how to best utilize conservation incentives, laws and policies to mutual advantage. Specifically, this book:
- Explains wildlife conservation on private lands.
- Demonstrates how to develop land management and habitat conservation plans for wildlife.

The farmer, rancher and other working private landowners with dirt under their fingernails are closer to wildlife than anyone else in America. They know what species of wildlife they have on their land, their habitats, what they eat, what their breeding and life cycles are, their migratory patterns and the population living on their land. These are the frontline stewards of wildlife conservation, but too few listen to them or ask if they can answer their questions, provide useful information or help in any way. Based on more than 100 interviews across America, this book is the private landowners’ reference guide for their desk or pickup truck that addresses their spectrum of questions.
The only hope for successful conservation of America’s threatened, endangered and at-risk wildlife is through voluntary, cooperative partnerships that focus on private property, where more than 75 percent of at-risk species can be found. Private landowners form the bedrock of these partnerships, and they have a long history of rising to meet the challenge of conservation.
