The Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust protects wildlife by permanently preserving habitat and providing humane stewardship.

Who We Are

What we do

Land owners whose property includes critical wildlife habitat know that such lands are rapidly disappearing. They also know that refusing to sell to those who would destroy or exploit the land is admirable, but provides only temporary safety.

Since 1993, the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust has provided a way to create permanent protection for both lands and the animals living there. With humane stewardship, careful monitoring and management of our thousands of acres, we protect spaces where wild animals thrive in their natural habitats. We look to connect these lands with other land trusts that share our mission of protecting animals.

On behalf of wildlife, as well as all who share a concern for these creatures, we offer our appreciation for the efforts of these hardworking and committed volunteers.
