DescriptionThe long era of "protection of natural resources through acquisition" is gradually drawing to a close. The budget-busting era of "protection through management" is forcing us to look for new funding mechanisms. But the idea of facilitating protection through enlightened self-interest is ripe for growth. Resource interpreters can provide the link with visitors and other constituents to influence "resource protective" behavior and develop a land ethic.
