About this Collection

The owners and managers of land can and do play a vital role in conserving our nation’s imperiled wildlife. Most threatened and endangered species, listing candidates, and species of concern depend at least in part on private and other nonfederal lands. The Fish and Wildlife Service offers a variety of incentives for private property owners, federal agencies, state and local governments, tribes, and other nonfederal landowners and managers to engage in voluntary conservation partnerships. These tools benefit imperiled species while making it possible for landowners to continue to use their land.
