Land Trust Organizations acquire and protect private land for conservation purposes. They have become the fastest growing tool for biodiversity conservation of private land in Canada. Despite their growth and the recognized importance of private protected areas; there is little information about them. This research aims to understand who the Land Trust Organizations are (e.g. size, level of protection, funding, governance structure, ecological monitoring) and the important opportunities and challenges they face. This baseline information on Land Trusts will contribute to making an informed decision of a nation-wide collaboration model of the organizations. This will support the changing of their political systems, to help humans live within Earth’s carrying capacity.
