Stewardship Practices Guides

The Stewardship Practices guides for species and risk and wildlife presents options and examples of good stewardship practices that address major threats to species impacted. The guides encourages people to take voluntary stewardship actions, called stewardship practices, to safeguard wildlife and species at risk. Stewardship can be broadly defined as an ethic that promotes the responsible use, protection, and management of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable best practices. 

The guides are designed to provide:  

  • Private landowners with information they can use to inform their actions to conserve wildlife and species at risk 
  • Information for local governments to use in developing mechanisms to help protect wildlife and species at risk 
  • Information for conservation and stewardship organizations that can facilitate their work.
