Opinions on "conservation" groups.

  1. Afternoon all.
    My wife recently joined a gardening club, and since then we have gotten a few offers to join some other clubs. Some of them more or less declared that they were anti hunting/ fishing/ farming (not good since we do all 3), but others like the Nature Conservancy and Sierra Club who claim to be more towards the center were not so clear cut as to what there views were. I tried to research online, but all that there seems to be is either greenpeace propoganda reprinted a million times, or NRA propoganda printed a million times. That kinda got me thinking about what all these groups support and made me start to wonder, other than the obvious groups out there like Ducks Unlimited and Whitetails Unlimited and the such that are firmly pro hunting, are there any real groups out there that are actually conservation groups any more and not just mouthpieces for the nutjobs like PETA? Any thoughts on the matter would be welcome.
