Innovation – applying best practices, developing new products/services, and using innovative partnerships.
Direct Linkage with Conservation Management – the enterprise models Shall be closely linked with the conservation management of the target areas to address the threats around the buffer zones and other surrounding habitats (e.g. stop deforestation, reduce human wildlife conflict, land use planning guiding agricultural practices).
Equitable Benefit Sharing and Community Skills – the businesses Shall include provisions to support improved community skills and benefit-sharing (e.g. local supply chains, investment in local skills and capacities)

Wildlife-based Enterprises – game ranching and other ancillary products from wildlife (e.g. crafts).
