Almost 50 years ago, fried chicken tycoon David Bamberger used his fortune to purchase 5,500 acres of overgrazed land in the Texas Hill Country. Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Bamberger's model of land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered to be a visionary in land management and water conservation. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe ➡ Get More Short Film Showcase: http://bit.ly/ShortFilmShowcase About Short Film Showcase: The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors.

Timber harvest done right, is not only greatly beneficial to the habitat, but can also help you purchase a piece of property. Contact an independent forester who can come to the property and build an inventory list. Typically, trees 18 inches or larger will be identified and listed. That list can then be sent out for bid and the forester can give you advice on who to hire. Not only can you use a timber harvest for financial benefit, but also for the deer that call the property home. If you've always dreamed of creating an opening for a food plot, this is your chance. Have the timber company clear off an entire section regardless of timber value and with a little leg work afterwards, you can have that secluded food plot! Where other trees are harvested, sunlight is allowed to hit the forest floor producing a flush of new trees and native vegetation that will feed your wildlife and the money from the harvested trees can be used to pay on your land for years to come.

The "Private Land Conservation Process" series addresses a part of the strategy that Colorado Parks and Wildlife uses in order to acquire suitable lands for purposes such as public access and wildlife habitat protection. In particular, these videos address the community outreach efforts of the agency's field staff and how this is part of the agency's acquisitions process. This outreach entails forming relationships with landowners and helping them with the agency's extensive process they must go through for their land to be considered for acquisition by the agency.

"586 acres of mature timber, hay producing fields and pasture with food plots for wildlife, a 10-acre trophy bass lake, horse stables, barn and a spacious four bedroom lodge. During the past few years, the owners began thinking about how to preserve and enhance this unique riverfront property, and they placed about 90% of the land under a Conservation Easement. The Conservation Easement ensures that the property will not be developed or disturbed in the future. Many fruit tree and vegetables are well suited for the soil and climate including asparagus, lima beans, green beans, beets, corn, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, parsley, peanuts, peas, potatoes, pumpkin, squash, tomato, and watermelon. You will find this ranch is just 15 miles downstream from the 16,227 acre Irish Wilderness which is a protected natural wilderness in the Mark Twain National Forrest. As large as the Irish Wilderness is, it is dwarfed by the 1.5 million acre Mark Twain National Forest of which it is a part. The onsite ten acre trophy bass lake is situated only 100 yards from the lodge and the Eleven Point River has produced some of the largest wild rainbow trout, walleye, rock bass (goggle eye) and smallmouth bass of all Ozark Rivers. Experts agree that because the Eleven Point is more remote than most other Ozark rivers, it makes for excellent fishing (and hunting). The cold water fishery created by Greer Spring and the forty four miles of protected wilderness combine to create a fisherman’s “dream stream.” Founder's vision is to maintain the character and integrity of the ranch, and to protect the wildlife and scenery of this unique Eleven Point River preserve. Many also consider this ranch as a place to retreat in case of an emergency situation or natural disaster. Master plans include off-grid energy sources as well as water, food and medical resources for extended periods of time."

A "Habitat Conservation Plan" is a required part of an application for an Incidental Take Permit, a permit issued under the United States Endangered Species Act to private entities undertaking projects that might result in the destruction of an endangered or threatened species. It is a planning document that ensures that the anticipated take of a listed species will be minimized or mitigated by conserving the habitat upon which the species depend, thereby contributing to the recovery of the species as a whole. The importance of preserving rare species was legally recognized in 1973 when the Endangered Species Act was signed into federal law. The purpose of the ESA is not only to protect species that have been listed as threatened or endangered, but also to conserve the ecosystems upon which those species depend. In aiming to protect species in danger of becoming extinct, the ESA prohibits actions that have the potential to result in a “taking” of any listed species. The term “take” under the ESA refers to any attempt or action involving the harassment, harm, pursuit, hunting, shooting, wounding, killing, trapping, capturing, or collecting of any listed species. Under this definition, the alteration of habitat that results in injury to, or death of, any listed species by preventing essential behavior is considered unlawful “harm”. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service are the lead agencies tasked with the implementation of the ESA and are therefore responsible for regulating prohibited and allowable activities. While the primary objective of the ESA is the protection of endangered species, and the take of such species is considered unlawful, the ESA is not absolute. In 1982, amendments were made to the 1973 ESA which authorize the Secretary of the Interior and the Secretary of Commerce to allow the take of federally listed species ). When non-federal activities that would otherwise be legal have the potential to result in the take of a listed species for example, they may be allowed under an Incidental Take Permit, obtained through the USFWS. To mitigate the take of listed species, Section 10 of the ESA requires that parties wishing to obtain an Incidental Take Permit must submit a conservation plan, hereafter referred to as a “Habitat Conservation Plan" or "HCP,” with their application.

This video features Yolo County farmer Dave Batcheller, who was experiencing a drainage problem on his small livestock farm. Conservationist Wendy Rash turned this into an opportunity for planning and she and Batcheller embarked on a process of defining goals and options for the farm. From there they work with NRCS Engineer Ha Truong to design and create a mini wetlands with a very natural look that the landowner really loves. They planted native trees, shrubs and flowers that have helped bring pollinators and wildlife like beaver to the farm. The plan is the right thing to do, says Batcheller. He says the ranch is more efficient and he also enjoys giving a few of the corners of the farm to wildlife. To have someone help out with the knowledge, the information, the funds--it was just something I wouldn't have known how to do on my own, summarizes Batcheller.

Emma McIntosh, 2014 BHP Billiton John Monash Scholar DPhil student, School of Geography and the Environment University of Oxford LinkedIn: https://uk.linkedin.com/in/emma-mcintosh-b3a85239 Recent estimates suggest that only 2 million square kilometres, or 1.5% of the land surface (the size of Mexico, or alternately Queensland and Victoria combined) is left as true wilderness. Under the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, 192 state parties have committed to enhancing global protected area networks (national parks, reserves etc.) to 17% of the land and 10% of our oceans by 2020. Currently only 15% of the earth’s land area and 4% of our oceans are part of protected areas, many of which allow recreational or extractive human uses. With the deadline fast approaching, we are faced with challenging conflicts and trade-offs between human land uses and conservation. However, there are opportunities to explore ‘land sharing’ scenarios and novel methods to introduce transparency into the associated value-laden debates. About Emma McIntosh: Emma is an ecologist with a desire to improve the way innovative science is used to resolve environmental challenges. She is currently completing a PhD on the effectiveness of tools and processes used to undertake land use trade-offs in relation to biodiversity conservation around the globe. Emma has worked on various projects involving natural resource conflicts and was previously Science Convenor with the Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership (GHHP), coordinating the development and implementation of an annual report card for Gladstone Harbour, in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The Adirondacks has been protected since the 1880s and became a national park in the 1970s. The government manages the park for a variety of uses, including recreational, ecological, and natural resource-related uses. The multiple uses of the park create conflict amongst stakeholders and require regulations that prevent certain types of development.

An introduction to pheasant habitat basics. TRANSCRIPTION: "Whether you are a pheasant hunter making plans for a fall hunting trip, or a landowner planning your next habitat project, one of the keys to success is a basic understanding of the various types of habitat that pheasants use throughout the year. In spring, pheasant hens begin looking for places to nest. They select habitats that provide cover and are secure from both aerial and ground predators. Hens nest in dense grass cover that is at least 12 to 15 inches tall, which provides overhead concealment and screening from ground level. In eastern Colorado, suitable nesting habitats include fields of actively growing green wheat, stands of high-quality warm-season grass, like those enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program, and other areas with residual cover. After the eggs hatch, the hens immediately move the chicks to brood-rearing habitats. Quality brood-rearing habitats are areas of mostly broad-leaved flowering plants that are interspersed with bare ground that allow the chicks to move around under a canopy of vegetation, which offers protection for the chicks from overhead predators. Another key component of quality brood habitat is an abundance of insects. Broadleaf flowering plants produce the critical insects that chicks need in their first few weeks of life Hen pheasants and their broods spend much of the summer season in these habitats. Adequate survival cover is important year-round. This survival cover consists of grass, forb or cropland vegetation that is at least 15 inches tall, and research has proven that survival increases as vegetation gets taller. Pheasants will use woody cover such as plum thickets and windbreaks during the hottest days in summer as they provide some relief from the relentless heat of the dog days of summer. As summer progresses into fall, pheasants shift their focus from brood rearing habitat into quality roosting, loafing and security cover. These are typically areas of dense grass, tall crop residue, growing crops or forbs. During winter, pheasants spend a small portion of each day feeding on waste grain in crop fields. Most of the day is spent loafing in adjacent taller cover, generally consisting of tall grasses, forb patches, shrub thickets, harvested crop stubble and vegetation associated with farmed playa wetlands or creek bottoms. However, during severe winter snowstorms, tree rows and shrub thickets become critical places for pheasants to find protection to survive the storm. If you’re interested in a pheasant habitat project on your land, contact the pheasant habitat improvement program office at 970-521-0233 or cpw.state.co.us/PHIP."

This video is from the Ohio Balanced Growth Program Best Local Land Use Practices video series. Conservation Development is a development technique that allows design and layout of an entire development parcel, to conserve resources while allowing development to occur at the same density as the underlying zoning. A special form of Planned Unit Development, conservation development utilizes high standards for open space and design, coupled with design flexibility. Conservation development can be designed to meet a range of goals including conserving open space, conserving natural and cultural resources, creating amenities attractive to buyers, and creating a new neighborhood that is an asset to the community. In many cases, concentrating development on just a portion of a development tract can minimize the cost of providing and maintaining public services and utilities.

"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

After the success of a pilot project with Suncor, Alberta Conservation Association's partnership became long-term to create the Boreal Habitat Conservation initiative. Important partnerships like these make it possible for ACA to purchase large areas of land and conserve them for generations to come. Alberta Conservation Association works to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and habitat for all Albertans to enjoy, value and use.

Teck Resources' science-based sustainability strategy is working to benefit people and wildlife in BC's Kootenay region. Actions include creating and implementing water quality and ecosystem management plans; spending over $20 million to purchase and conserve land with high biodiversity value; and addressing the ongoing impacts of its mining operations through a cumulative effects management framework. Working with a variety of stakeholders, Teck has made major investments to obtain social license to operate and to conserve land across the Kootenay region, setting an example for other resource extraction companies.

Data-driven decision making is what I'm striving for on my farm. Sounds cold and dry right? It's not, it's actually a lot of fun. I also find it less stressful because then I'm not guessing, I know the answer because it is right in front of me. Troy has taught me with this video that having a map of my farm can be a valuable tool for grazing management and land planning. You can either use Google Maps or contact your local conservation district to track down maps. Whatever you use, I suggest printing them out. It's easier to share that way, good to take out in the field, and nothing beats an old-fashioned piece of paper. I've actually done some research (again, thanks to Troy) and my local conservation district offers several different kinds of maps for my farm, which is great because if I want I can address more than one issue. But for now, I must stay focused! Here's a link to an image of Troy's map used in this video: http://www.farmmarketingsolutions.com/grazingmapexample Visit Troy: http://thegrasswhisperer.com Visit me: http://farmmarketingsolutions.com
