USTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2023 / EINPresswire.com / — LPC Conservation, LLC, a Texas-based collaborative of conservation bankers, who invest in permanent easements partnering with private ranchers for protecting endangered species, has leveraged a unique Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP), approved by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, to permanently conserve approximately 3,000 acres of native prairie habitat for the lesser prairie-chicken in Gove County, Kansas.
The HCP is resolving conflicts with protecting the lesser prairie-chicken under the Endangered Species Act and renewable energy permitting delays. LPC Conservation, LLC has advanced the bird’s recovery, helped sustain a working ranch, and enabled a major clean energy transmission line to win approval. LPC Conservation operates in the five states where the lesser prairie-chicken is found: Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.
Wayne Walker, CEO of LPC Conservation, said: “Our business delivers robust legal protection under the Endangered Species Act for renewable energy, transmission and oil and gas projects. Our customers earn that assurance by funding strategic, effective conservation approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Market-based payments reward ranchers for their stewardship as they continue running cattle, hunting and working their lands.”
