3 The Key to the Corridors Conservation Easements: The Key to the Corridors “If we identify a ranch … that’s between two wilderness reserves, and we feel it will be necessary as a corridor, we can say to the rancher, ‘We don’t want you to give up your ranch now, but let us put a conservation easement on it. Let’s work out the tax details so you can donate it in your will to this reserve system’.” Dave Foreman Listening to the Land by Derrick Jensen (Sierra Club Books)

4 The Key to the Corridors Conservation Easements: The Key to the Corridors "The only hope of the Earth is to withdraw huge areas as inviolate natural sanctuaries from the depredations of modern industry and technology. Move out the people and cars. Reclaim the roads and the plowed lands." Dave Foreman Confessions of an Eco-Warrior

5 The Key to the Corridors Conservation Easements: The Key to the Corridors ”Conservation Easements are the key to the Corridors. Once the Easements are Legally in Place, We can Impose Habitat Restrictions for Wildlife thus Ending Grazing and Other Agricultural Practices. If the Landowner Refuses, the Easement Management Loophole will Allow Us to Sue the Landowner and Impose those Restrictions.” New Mexico Wilderness Alliance Meeting, May 1999
