    Thumbs down

    It's pretty pathetic what people are willing to destroy so they can have more places to eat a cheese burger. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Were i live there was a small bog (don't know whether or not It had carnivorous plants, but I remember somebody said there was somesort of endangered plant in there) some stupid old man started to fill it in with dirt and a dollar general store was built right in the middle of it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Luckly after the dollar store was built the guy who was filling in and selling the land got in trouble, and was forced to stop filling in the bog with dirt. After that I think the local high school purchased It for their science classes to study.

    I think I'm going to be sick. Thousands of acres filled with sarracenia and drosea just run over by people with no care in the world. That just sickens me that the humans have no respect for the enviroment and what surrounds them.

    I know that there is absolutely no way to save all the bogs or even most, but I think that if you know of a bog with cp's you shouldn't wait until construction starts. But you should try and get it protected right then. Maybe convince your highschool to buy it for biology classes. Or try and talk the officials at city hall that the bog could become a tourist attraction and a nice place for nature walks. Convince someone that the bog will benefit them in some way or another. Persuade them in the best way you can.

    And oh yeah. Don't try to sound like a tree hugger. You won't get as much respect if you try to sound concerned about it not obsessed.
    I'm not trying to say you guys are obsessed or anything like that it is just how i am

    Just one sentence....

    Of all the possible places in the world....why build a store on an area like this....the wildlife value was probably enormous compared to say....the run down parts of a city.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    But who wants to build in the middle of a rundown city? It's much cheaper to build on land that hasn't been built on before. That way you can choose the best location for your business and you don't have to worry about the inner city crime.

    The answer to your question is the almighty dollar. The builder is going to build where he can make the most money.
