Nature Conservancy faces potential backlash from ties with BP
"This is going to be a real test for charities and non-profits such as the Nature Conservancy," said Dean Zerbe, a lawyer who investigated the Conservancy's relations with its donors when he worked for the Senate Finance Committee. "This not only stains BP but, if they don't respond properly, it also stains those who have been benefiting from their money and their support."
"[O]ther organizations–like Conservation International and [The Nature Conservancy] TNC – seem incapable of internal reform and simply need to be shunned. They are not part of the environmental movement: they are polluter-funded leeches sucking on the flesh of environmentalism, leaving it weaker and depleted."
For comparatively small amounts of money, polluting corporations can buy "reputation insurance", or defense against criticism. Every time they are criticised, the polluters can show their green awards, provided by the same environmental organizations that they funded

In the days after the immensity of the spill in the Gulf of Mexico became clear, some Nature Conservancy supporters took to the organization's web site to vent their anger.
"The first thing I did was sell my shares in BP, not wanting anything to do with a company that is so careless," wrote one. Another added: "I would like to force all the BP executives, the secretaries and the shareholders out to the shore to mop up oil and wash the birds." Reagan De Leon of Hawaii called for a boycott of "everything BP has their hands in."
What De Leon didn't know was that the Nature Conservancy lists BP as one of its business partners. The organization also has given BP a seat on its International Leadership Council and has accepted nearly $10 million in cash and land contributions from BP and affiliated corporations over the years.

Non-profits in bed with corporations is sick and unfortunately SOP. But non profits are corporations so really it is corporations in bed with corporations.

BTW there are bad plants that displace and kill off native animal and plant species. So contrary to your comment there are bad plants, and bad animals including some bad self-interested humans.

Eucalyptus are an example. Not only are they a fire hazard but they squeeze out native plant species resulting in imbalances that negatively affect native insect, animal and plant species including extinction. Really it is science that even you could understand.

Mrs. are right about the corporation thing but oh so wrong about non-native demonize them but you must understand that dispersal, whether by man or wind or birdy is a fact of life..nothing can change that..take a look at the picture and see the remnants of roadside purple thistle recently chopped down by Caltrans, leaving hundreds of seed pods to blow away and take root somewhere else...extinction is also a fact of life....walk out in Nature and try to appreciate all plants instead of looking for plant enemies...and stop spreading myths about eucalyptus or one might fall on your head! think on these things
