This chapter reviews innovative practices that have originated or been advanced in California for the protection of biological diversity. California has been one of the nation's leaders in initiating new ways of implementing endangered-species laws, carrying out conservation actions on public and private lands, using biodiversity information in planning conservation and mitigation actions, and adapting conservation plans to the reality of climate change. While they are not entirely successful, these important innovations recognize the value of California's unique biological diversity.
