Land conservation requires and depends upon adaptive and ongoing management and stewardship of natural, cultural, and landscape values. In some countries and regions, stewardship and land management are the primary means of protecting land, particularly in the context of working landscapes which feature a 'mosaic' of land use and land cover. We explore and share the use of innovative approaches to solving stewardship challenges, and initiatives to support the involvement and participation of land owners, land users, and land managers in land conservation and restoration projects.
