ABSTRACT: Given the extent of private lands in the Southeast and the growing number of listed and petitioned species in the region, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has recognized the need for tools for the conservation of at-risk and listed species on private lands. These tools include Candidate Conservation Agreements with Assurances, Safe Harbor Agreements, and in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Working Lands for Wildlife Program. Although there are numerous examples of the successful application of these tools, challenges remain in the conservation of at-risk species on private lands. This presentation will review the existing tools for conservation of at-risk and listed species on private working forests, discuss landowner concerns with existing tools, and identify new approaches that could expand the accessibility, use, and impact of existing conservation tools.
