In the middle of the last century, when conservation focused extensively 
on preventing soil erosion, building farm ponds, and hedge rows, some of 
the most active voices for conservation came from hunters.  As people 
with other interests jointed the conservation movement, the alliance 
with hunters (or others with extractive resource use) was often uneasy, 
yet Ducks Unlimited, Trout Unlimited, and other groups have been 
important voices for habitat preservation.  Perhaps Butterflies 
Unlimited will gain the same reputation.   MIKE GOCHFELD
