Andrew provided the link to the story of earth sanctuaries - a story which further highlights this predicament - once you get business involved at any level (in the case of ESL it was shareholders) then there is the constant pressure of returning a profit
someone already mentioned earlier in this thread the challenges faced by Birds Aust to manage its landholdings.
it seems that philanthropy is the key to this - the idea that someone would purchase land and give back to the people

in perpetuity albeit managed by a government agency such as national parks.


i would consider putting my hand in my pocket and just this morning others i have spoken to would also be prepared however purchasing as a group is one thing, maintaining it is another.


the idea that it could run itself via its 'tourist' appeal - well i hark back to the ESL example.
