Wildlands Conservation has assembled a team of ecologists and land managers that has collectively managed tens of thousands of acres of land for the state, several counties, and private landowners. Wildlands Conservation also manages mitigation areas and conservation easements set aside for the protection of both wetlands and uplands with species-specific management objectives.
Management implementation frequently includes: habitat restoration, enhancement, and ongoing management activities. Currently, Wildlands Conservation is responsible for managing various preserves and conservation easements throughout west and central Florida, Virginia, and Tennessee.
