Abstract:
Rabb discusses the work of the North Carolina Chapter of the Nature Conservancy. The Conservancy buys property to protect endangered species or important habitats. Since the local chapter formed in 1977, it has bought 320,000 acres and placed it off-limits to real estate development. Almost 70 percent of the preserved land has come in as gifts, and the chapter has the support of forty-two North Carolina corporate contributors who help supply the group's land protection fund.
