Here's a second example: The Nature Conservancy is also selling native 
plants and seeds which are from its conservation lands in the Great 
Lakes region, to not only raise awareness of these special plants but 
also to raise funds to use for further conservation work.  Each plant 
comes with an informational plastic stake that describes the plant and 
the use of the funds generated by its sale.

Certainly, if the Nature Conservancy can sell native plants to raise 
funds for native plant conservation, it seems only natural that the 
Native Fish Conservancy can sell fish for fish conservation.
