Re: NFC: NFC "sanctions" and our detractors...


I think this is a good topic to discuss. Let me frame this in a bit by
saying  to do any real conservation you need BIG money. And that Audobon
, TNC, and TU< DU are pretty commercial they have the official T shirts,
calenders clocks, trees etc of XYZ they use this to raise funds, support
a position and raise public awareness.....So with our small size and
newness I was surprised we had any detractors. I'd be interested to see
the pro and con arguments of conservation commercialism which is really
what we are talking about......
