Why Americans don't buy conservation

Bird's nest over Bassett Creek
On a long walk yesterday morning it finally occurred to me why conservation simply does not sell well to consumer driven Americans....... it doesn't involve buying anything!

Even when it comes to charity, people from the USA tend to focus on material things. The founder of Habitat for Humanity, Millard Fuller, once noted "Americans love to give to anything they can take a picture of."

Do you buy this?
