Travel Business Review - 07 June 2010(c)2005 - Electronic News Publishing - http://www.enpublishing.co.uk
Whidbey Camano Land Trust, a US-based non-profit agency for conservation of forest lands, has announced a campaign to protect a critical Whidbey Island forest in Greenbank, Washington, US.
The agency has commenced a campaign to recruit 350 people to each save an acre at USD6,500 per acre to protect the Whidbey Island forest, as an option for the agency to buy the Whidbey Island forest property will expire on June 10, 2010, due to lack of funds.
The agency executive director, Pat Powell, said, 'This is our last chance. If our efforts fail, the largest tract of forest land on Whidbey Island will be divided up, sold, and developed. It will be lost to the public and wildlife forever.'
