  • MPG Ranch Project Analysis

    Although the group as a whole preaches to be a conservation group, I tend to see them somewhere in between conservation and preservation. The group 's overall goal of preserving land for future generations is an idea that directly mirrors the goals of conservationists. Also, the ranch is economically focused on using the land directly for human use. However, this is where I think the comparisons start because I feel that many of their environmental philosophies mirror very closely with Arne…
