MARKETS AND ECOSYSTEM SERVICES: Encouraging Habitat Conservation by Private Landowners Under the Endangered Species Act
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 - 1:00pm to Tuesday, November 22, 2011 - 3:00pm

The conservation of biodiversity and fish and wildlife habitat on private lands is crucial to the protection of endangered and threatened species.  Can we provide mutually beneficial outcomes for both private landowners and species that rely on the conservation of their habitat on private lands? What policies are needed to improve our ability to address biodiversity issues before species are listed? Where do regulations fit in the scheme of things?  How should banking programs fit into larger, landscape-scale conservation plans?

Please join us for a discussion on how market-based approaches could improve conservation outcomes and compensate private landowners for conserving habitat and protecting biodiversity. The presentation and discussion will be led by Perry Salzhauer, LL.M. Candidate, Lewis & Clark Law School, co-author of the paper, Markets and Ecosystem Services: Encouraging Habitat Conservation by Private Landowners Under the Endangered Species Act.
