Habitat loss is the number one threat to wildlife and biodiversity. Land and water conservation efforts conserve, protect, and restore wildlife habitat and natural areas through a combination of land securement and stewardship practices.


The long-term protection of the natural features of nature reserves and conservation lands requires comprehensive stewardship planning to ensure effective conservation practices are carried out in perpetuity.


Community engagement and landowner outreach programs invite landowners to participate in land conservation and nature legacy planning with land trusts and conservation agencies to protect the natural features of their land in perpetuity.


Orland Conservation is an environmental consulting group that specializes in conservation land securement for the long-term protection of landscapes, ecosystems, and biodiversity. Together with our clients, we have successfully protected over 10,000 acres of environmentally significant land in Canada.  Read More
