AUTHORS: Margaret O'Gorman, President, Wildlife Habitat Council

ABSTRACT: Engaging corporations with natural resource conservation in a meaningful way can result in a strong voice to support state wildlife agencies and protection for the nation’s biodiversity. Across the country, corporate landowners are already engaged in conservation driven by different business goals and challenges. These activities range from isolated actions implemented by interested land managers, to corporate-wide initiatives supported by the sustainability or corporate social responsibility functions of across a business. When the activities are implemented to contribute to existing conservation priorities like State Wildlife Action Plans, the landowners have an increased sense of the conservation context in which their lands sit, a greater sense of ownership and purpose and a stronger inclination to support efforts to sustain America’s diverse fish and wildlife populations.
