Working lands have the richest biodiversity, per acre, found across the Western landscape, and are typically where the majority of fresh water is found. Working lands are also equally critical for sustaining prosperous rural businesses and long-term economic vitality.
The stewardship of these landscapes is both a privilege and a tremendous responsibility. Western Landowners Alliance was founded by landowners to share knowledge with one another, to make science more accessible and relevant, and to provide the resources and information needed to make sound management decisions.
Habitat Conservation Strategies for Migrating Wildlife
Landowner perspectives gained in one-on-one interviews and focus groups throughout the Upper Rio Grande form the foundation of a toolkit of strategies for policymakers, funders, and organizations looking to improve wildlife habitat in this dynamic trans-boundary region of Colorado and New Mexico. The recommendations are applicable to many other regions of the West where migratory wildlife are a conservation concern.
