Conservation is the protection and stewardship of the land and water, and the flora and fauna that live there. This includes maintaining and/or enhancing biodiversity and ecosystems. Stewardship includes: doers, donors, and practitioners. For example, doers may volunteer to remove invasive plants, pick up garbage, or plant trees. Donors give money or help raise funding for a cause. Lastly, Practitioners work daily towards steering governmental agencies, scientists, stakeholder groups, or any other group toward a stewardship outcome.
At ThINC, we strive to progress conservation efforts through establishing nature reserves, promoting covenants and nature stewardship programs, and engaging in community science projects.
