Habitat Protection - Conservation Covenants

A priceless gift by current landowners for current and future generations

Our Conservation Covenants programme assists Banks Peninsula landowners to ensure that important indigenous biodiversity, landscape, and cultural values on their property are protected and maintained. The covenant is a powerful legal mechanism for perpetual protection that requires current and future landowners to manage the covenant for conservation purposes.

A well-managed covenant results in high value biodiversity being not only protected but enhanced. Indigenous habitat quality quickly improves on the exclusion of stock, weed and animal pests are reduced with good management, soil and water quality plus carbon sequestration are improved. 

A conservation covenant is a priceless gift by current landowners to future generations.
