Conservation Legacy Support

secure long-term protection

There are many reasons why individuals, organisations, companies and Government agencies want to secure the long-term protection of our shared unique natural heritage on private land.  Many of the world’s most important places for biodiversity (and geodiversity) remain outside formal protected areas and their long term protection is vital in the effort to address the world’s biodiversity crisis and maintain our unique species.  Long term cost effective protection requires smart design, planning, strategic investment, use of the right protection tools and targeted management. 

Over the last six years Mike has been intimately involved in supporting private land protection as part of New Zealand and international efforts.  This has included as CEO of the QEII National Trust with oversight over New Zealand’s 4,500 protected covenants on private land, coordinator of the Queen’s Commonwealth Forest Canopy protection programme, and as part of an international expert group under the umbrella of the  International Union for the Conservation of Nature and World Commission on Protected Areas that has developed Best Practice for private land protections.
