Conservative Conservation:

Modest reforms, especially in Interior Department and Forest Service policies, could bring about major advances in achieving environmental goals. This booklet offers concrete proposals for endangered species protection, federal land trusts, grazing permits, recreation fees, and water management.

These recommendations can be implemented readily by the Bush administration, in some cases with cooperation from Congress. While they are summarized briefly here, they reflect research conducted by PERC associates for many years.

The booklet was compiled by Donald R. Leal with editorial assistance from Jane S. Shaw and was produced by Dianna Rienhart. James Lindquist drew the cover illustration. It is available here on our Web site as well as in hard copy from the PERC office. For more information and for research supporting these reforms, contact PERC The Center for Free Market Environmentalism.
