Want To Know The Latest Innovations in Land and Biodiversity Conservation? Start Here

When you think innovation, what comes to mind? Chances are it might be technology related – but what’s not as common to come across in the trending news articles is innovation in the nature conservation arena.

Conservation innovation stems from passionate work done by volunteers and environmental professionals striving to develop initiatives that protect land, aquatic environments and biodiversity. These breakthroughs are instrumental in protecting and fostering a sustainable and resilient world. The land, water and natural resources that these innovations are championed to protect include recreational public space, important resources to a fresh water supply and clean air, and critical habitats for native species.
