The consultation process for the development of this report included a broad-reaching e-mail to the private land conservation community. The request from CLC encouraged interested organizations to provide written responses to supplied questions on stewardship and legal protection or to set up a conference call with CLC to discuss the topics of stewardship and legal protection (using the supplied questions as a guide). CLC connected with 24 organizations, including one Indigenous organization and other relevant stakeholders, i.e., funders and representatives from the case studies.

CLC is grateful to the organizations and individuals who shared their experiences and opinions which helped shaped this report. However, the learnings and recommendations are the opinions and reflections of CLC alone. Any errors or omissions are those of CLC. Please note that in order to assure anonymity, the name of the Indigenous organization does not appear on this list.
