Landscape scale conservation planning for people and nature

Conservation of wildlife works best when it’s locally led and integrates with existing policy structures. Our landscape scale biodiversity conservation planning approach is truly multidisciplinary and involves participation across community groups and all levels of government. This is a vastly more affordable, practical and achievable solution. Robust and integrated conservation planning will improve livelihoods, protect ecosystems and save endangered animals faster and more sustainably.

The problem: biodiversity collapse and climate change

All over the world, local communities and government are addressing accelerating ecosystem collapse. Biodiversity is the sum total of all ecosystem functions that create rich soil, clean water and a healthy living environment for wildlife and people – this contributes to a third of climate change. Unless this complex problem is approached strategically, outcomes become unaffordable and unobtainable.

Healthy wildlife populations are evidence of a healthy living environment for people.

Using endangered species to fix a complex biodiversity problem

Biodiversity conservation has often been led by a focus on individual endangered species. But agencies and community groups don’t have time to identify actions for all species. Our approach is to work closely with a broad range of scientists, government and community experts, to identify where there are overlapping needs. This creates advice that is more practical and has multiple benefits.

Endangered species ecology shows us where and how to rebuild ecosystem function.

Bending the curve: creating a self-sustaining nature-based solution

Our knowledge about the connection between animals and their environment helps us describe the structure and function of landscapes at a scale we can understand. Even despite gaps in understanding. Good conservation planning reverses endangered animal declines, not just because wildlife is better protected, but because we are managing the landscape better overall. The real value in endangered species recovery, is in helping us make better decisions, to restore and maintain the structure and function of whole regions.

Landscape Conservation Planning

Integrated, multidisciplinary planning creates fast results that reverse endangered species decline.

Rebuilding a healthy natural environment for people and wildlife

The benefits of nature-based solutions are economic but they are not just about wildlife. By focusing on the connections between animals and their landscape, we are identifying critical paths to human health and rebuilding farm viability. Other livelihood and lifestyle benefits such as tourism, flow on from this landscape scale biodiversity conservation planning.

The result, which can be achieved within a relatively short time, is a more valuable living environment for all.
