When it comes to private timberlands, it’s easy to miss the forest for the trees, but these landscapes, from loblolly pine forests in the Southeast to Douglas fir stands in the Northwest, can play critical roles for wildlife. In the November/December issue of The Wildlife Professional, our cover feature “Certified to Conserve,” by associate editor Dana Kobilinsky, examines the role that forest certification plays in managing private timberlands for conservation. An accompanying article, “Conservation through Collaboration,” takes a look at how one novel partnership is ensuring a place for wildlife in private, working forests.
Other articles examine how course-based undergraduate research experiences can benefit wildlife undergraduates, an effort to remove problematic turkeys from North Carolina airports to boost populations in Texas and the 30th anniversary of the North American Wetlands Conservation Act. Look for these and more articles when the latest issue of The Wildlife Professional appears in mailboxes soon.
