The purpose of our approach is to: Secure the functional connectivity, habitats and species of the critically important and threatened Zarand Landscape Corridor.
In setting up the programme to achieve this, we have focused on the delivery of four key elements including:
- Securing conservation project funding and other support to deliver an integrated conservation programme in the corridor, including land purchase to place the most important areas under secure long-term conservation management.
- Supporting custodianship of Natura 2000 sites in the corridor.
- Enhance local livelihoods and well-being through the securing of long-term funding for community projects to support the development of sustainable livelihoods opportunities issues as an integral part of the programme.
- Build local capacity to facilitate sustainable conservation delivery in the long-term.
