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

Vital wildlife habitat is rapidly disappearing to development and other exploitative uses. The only defense against these unwanted changes to the land and disruption or loss of life for the wildlife it harbors is permanent protection. With humane stewardship, careful monitoring and management of our more than 20,000 acres of vital habitat we provide forever homes for wildlife.


How does Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust oversee the lands under its protection?

In addition to annual property reviews conducted by the Trust’s stewardship staff or our expert consultants, properties are monitored throughout the year by specially trained volunteer sanctuary monitors. These dedicated individuals oversee properties assigned to them and report any concerns that arise to our staff for follow-up.

Do all Trust sanctuaries have threatened, endangered or rare species living on them?

No. The Trust protects the homes of ALL species of wildlife living on our sanctuaries, not just those that are already endangered, threatened, or rare. Many of our sanctuaries do provide safe homes for imperiled species, but our humane stewardship is a steadfast commitment to all wildlife on all Trust-protected lands. And, as wildlife biologists are discovering, many once-common species are now seriously declining. This fact reveals the importance of valuing all wildlife and recognizing all wild animals deserve safe homes.

Bobcats have long been the target of hunters and trappers. Still, the primary threat to this great cat is the loss of habitat.
