Protecting private land is the next vanguard of global action to address the decline in biodiversity. The importance of protecting private land was highlighted at the World Parks Congress in Sydney in November 2014 when private protected areas (PPAs) were declared to be critical for the future of biodiversity on the planet. With government funds under increasing pressure, yet the need for a healthy biodiversity ever more paramount, the ability for many private landowners to participate in the solution is vital. As the call is heeded by more people wanting to take substantial, direct action to protect threatened species, the market for private land conservation properties will also grow and be in demand.
