“The Problem: We have destroyed natural habitat in so many places that local extinction is rampant and global extinction accelerating. This is a growing problem for humanity because it is the plants and animals around us that produce the life support we all depend on. Every time a species is lost from an ecosystem, that ecosystem is less able to support us.
The Solution: We must abandon the notion that humans and nature cannot live together. Though vital as short-term refuges, nature preserves are not large enough to be meeting our ecological needs so we must restore the natural world where we live, work and play. Because 85% of the U. S, is privately owned, our private properties are an opportunity for long-term conservation if we design them to meet the needs of life around us.”
