Conservation easements provide some of the most effective tools to benefit wildlife and ecosystems on the vast expanses in the United States that are in private hands. In the September/October issue of The Wildlife Professional our cover story looks at the important role that these legal protections play in conservation and in meeting goals to protect the habitats on which native species depend. In our special focus, we delve into the world of spotted skunks and how wildlifers are working together to better understand and conserve these cryptic mustelids. Other articles probe the historical diversity of TWS’ plenary speakers, explore exciting wildlife policy developments and consider how misinformation can make it even harder to manage wild pigs.
