Partners for Western Conservation
The mission of Partners for Western Conservation (PWC) is to implement market-based conservation and ecosystems services to benefit wildlife, the environment, landowners, and the regulated community. The use of sound science, assistance, resources, and educational efforts will create a community of partners committed to the conservation and stewardship of land, water, air, and wildlife.
PWC Seeks A Conservation Market Emergence:
Quadrants of Approach:
The main function of PWC will be to negotiate contracts, manage systems, facilitate contractors, and maintain agreements/credits between the private landowners and the stakeholders. A few of the stakeholders involved in PWC will include landowners, conservation organizations like Environmental Defense Fund, commercial interests, the Department of Natural Resources, Fish and Wildlife Services, and Colorado State University's Center for Collaborative Conservation. These stakeholders will provide direction, consultation, monitoring, and research to PWC's efforts.
The Colorado Cattlemen’s Association is working cooperatively with Partners for Western Conservation as a contracting organization administering PWC’s day-to-day activities and carrying out the organization’s mission.
