Conservation

Creating Landscape Resiliency

Landscape resiliency is an older formal concept than that of community resiliency, and modern conservation efforts have had an underlying resiliency goal since they began more than a century ago. These efforts include designating core unroaded wilderness areas, large intact tracts of wild spaces and sustainably managed wildlands, habitat connectivity for animals that move around, minimum flows for fish, and much more to maintain stocks and flocks of birds, fish, and game. As the indigenous peoples knew long ago, conservation of resources is essential to human and ecosystem survival. Without a habitat—a healthy functioning ecosystem that is the web of life—nothing lives.

 

ForEverGreen Forestry keeps conservation principles at the core of everything we do. Past projects include fundraising to purchase primary forest, contributing to stewardship and management plans, restoration efforts, and fire preparedness. Partial list of projects below:

  • US forest conservation, primarily working in temperate rainforests, especially coast redwoods and Southern Chile. 

  • Launched campaigns among diverse stakeholders, developed strategic plans for success, and facilitated their implementation and successful completion. 

  • Led efforts to protect the Headwaters Ancient Redwood Forest, including the Headwaters Forest Stewardship Plan and its award-winning GIS.

  • Designed landscape-level conservation strategies including Redwoods to the Sea in California and the Gondwana program in Patagonia that led to the successful Karunkika project in Tierra del Fuego, Chile.
