At the moment if you're interested in buying a reserve there is no way to find something that best meets your conservation objectives (eg rainforests, tiger habitat, primary forest) or aims to provide best conservation value/$. And there's nothing for small investors - you have to buy the whole reserve yourself
I have a business plan but it would need three areas on knowledge which I don't have: legals (to set up land trusts), financial management and web development. I can provide the conservation prioritisation.
I don't have money to pay people up front. I'd like to find people willing to get involved as partners, but I think it could provide an income in a couple of years, if we get it going. And it wouldn't require a lot of time at first.
I'd be interested to know what people think. How should I go about finding people for this? Thanks for any suggestions.

Now if it was Paul stomach down with his hair combed just so, I'd vote for that cover. Feel like being permie beefcake?
This has been a very popular request!
Many lady Permies have cried out for a sexy man ad for something - perhaps some glamour shots of some of our permaculture handsomes are in order!
