Earth's 'last edens' receive $20 million boost

orts. Dr. Sanderson said, Mr. Wilsons extraordinary grant will allow the Wildlife Conservation Society to build on its model conservation programs at these important sites. The support enables us to focus on long-term, sustainable management, and to develop close working relationships with the people who live there. Working for the long-term and building alliances will result in more powerful conservation solutions.

Many of the areas included in the Living Landscapes initiative already contain protected areas. However, the biological needs of landscape species seasonal migration patterns, for example often take them outside existing parks and reserves to areas where logging, mining and agriculture predominate.

The Living Landscapes approach specifically targets these areas beyond park boundaries. Through analysis of resident human population requirements, coupled with a thorough understanding of the needs of landscape species, the Wildlife Conservation Society can effect successful action. Its conservationists have spent decades establishing the science and trust necessary to make this new approach work.

The Wilson grant will also be used to help fund a variety of other WCS conservation efforts. The organization supports some 350 projects in more than 50 countries.

The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild lands. We do so through careful science, international conservation, education, and the management of the worlds largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. Together, these activities change individual attitudes towards nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in sustainable interaction on both a local and global scale. We believe our ability to perpetuate such a world is intrinsic to the integrity of life on Earth.
