Abstract Nature organisations possess a large amount of natural capital thanks to their nature sites. The value of this capital is extremely important for the organisations themselves and in particular for society as a whole. Natural capital provides numerous ecosystem services from which people benefit, such as water purification, carbon storage, pollination and biomass. The question in this instance is how nature organisations can generate more financial resources from their nature sites in order to maintain and protect their natural capital. After all, although these services are very valuable, most of these benefits are free and do not produce any income. A case study in De Weerribben-Wieden National Park in the north of the Netherlands clearly demonstrates how an area-oriented approach involving innovative revenue models is required if nature sites are to produce sufficient income. That said, without the commitment and a shared sense of urgency from stakeholders in the area, new finance mechanisms that are intended to conserve and the characteristic landscape have little chance of success. In light of this, the challenge for this region is to build a perspective that has the stakeholders’ confidence and that encourages them to cooperate in order to benefit from the opportunities that monetisation offers.
