The only hope for successful conservation of America's threatened, endangered, and at-risk wildlife is through voluntary, cooperative partnerships that focus on private land, where over 75% 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. But they can't do it alone. This book is a guide for private landowners who want to conserve wildlife. Whether engaged in farming, ranching, forestry, mining, energy development, or another business, private working lands all have value as wildlife habitat, with the proper management and financial support. This book provides landowners and their partners with a roadmap to achieve conservation compatible with their financial and personal goals. This book introduces the art and language of land management planning as well as regulatory compliance with laws such as the Endangered Species Act of 1973. It categorizes and explains the tools used by wildlife professionals to implement conservation on private lands. Moreover it documents the multitude of federal, state, local, and private opportunities for landowners to find financial and technical assistance in managing wildlife, from working with a local NGO to accessing the $6 billion per year available through the federal Farm Bill.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This straightforward handbook will rally the ecological power of private landowners. By clarifying multiple confusing laws, amendments, and regulations, it spreads a map for landowners and advocates to travel together. -- Dirk Kempthorne, former Secretary of Interior
Saving Species on Private Lands is a timely and valuable resource for landowners willing to engage in the greatest conservation effort of all time. Lowell Baier demystifies voluntary conservation and helps landowners use proven tools to make smart decisions leading to real conservation. His vision of the natural harmony that can exist between people and wildlife on working lands will inspire and empower the rising generation of conservation leaders. -- Dave Tenny, President & CEO, National Alliance of Forest Owners
Private land and landowners are critical to healthy wildlife populations. Partnerships between landowners and other wildlife conservationists are key to conserving declining wildlife species, and necessary to ensure working landscapes remain productive for human communities as well. This book explains programs and approaches to partnership-driven voluntary conservation on private lands and is a valuable resource for landowners and others who want to learn more about wildlife conservation opportunities on private land. -- Steve Jester, Executive Director, Partners for Conservation
Private landowners play a critical role for species and habitat conservation. Saving Species on Private Lands documents decades of work with the private sector and illustrates how wildlife conservation can integrate with operations - from forestry and energy development to farming and ranching - on private lands. -- Edward B. Arnett, Chief Scientist, Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership
