Protecting nature through covenants and land management
So what is a covenant and how does it work?
A conservation covenant is a voluntary, legal agreement made between a private landholder and Trust for Nature that protects the land forever. The covenant is the first step in a long-term program of supporting the owners' efforts to manage the land while protecting significant threatened species. The Stewardship Program is a commitment by Trust for Nature to achieve this and aims to work collaboratively with landholders to maintain and/or enhance conservation values on their property through prevention and control of threats to the biodiversity of a site.
