Private lands provide an incredibly rich and vibrant tapestry of habitats, across our nation, that serve as home to tens of thousands of at-risk species, ranging from invertebrates to plants, from birds to mammals. Private landowners can make a serious conservation difference through voluntary, planned management actions in concert with, and supported by, myriad state, federal, and non-governmental partners. Lowell Baier is a preeminent, indefatigable legal scholar of conservation and endangered species, and I can think of no better person to provide such a timely and important resource as Saving Species on Private Lands.
