Hi Giles,

You are right that landowners in Australia don't 'own' the biodiversity on their properties but they do have the ability to control it either in a positive or negative way. I was a little casual with my choice of words but the point I was making was that without the support of the landowners off-park conservation would be very difficult indeed. There are many laws 'protecting' biodiversity on private lands in Australia but the loss of biodiversity continues. The only way the laws will be effective is by landowners working voluntarily within them.
