    Let us be clear that we are unabashed fans of Disneyland. In our opinion, Disneyland is one of the finest things done for people by people. Among other things, it creates tangible fantasy and apparent reality, in ways that are pleasing to most of its visitors. But it is not reality; nor is it a natural ecosystem. Let us further assert that we believe the fantasy of a "Disneyland" to be better than the reality of another suburban parking lot. Similarly, if a truly nativeecosystemcannot be restored, then we believe that the restoration of something biologically viable and sustainable is far preferable to the complete loss of that ecosystem.
