Land Trust Defense and Enforcement of Conserved Areas

Achieving conservation goals in protected areas hinges on continual monitoring, enforcement, and legal defense. A national survey of land trust legal defense of conserved areas showed half of land trusts reported a legal challenge, and one-quarter of those land trusts were hindered by financial barriers in pursuing a legal challenge. Interviews with land trust staff revealed the necessary conditions for pursuing legal defense, including organizational capacity, community support, and persuasive property claims, as well as the importance of stewardship endowments and the need for greater land trust capacity and accountability.
