    a holding category designed to generate some income at the same time that land is withdrawn from the market, making adjacent lands that are left more valuable.

    Conservation, whether applied to people or real estate, is largely aimed at keeping other people from using or enjoying something the conservative has no use for at the present time.

    Also, having a special program to conserve supports the notion that the normal practice is to dole natural resources out. We wouldn't need a special program nor tax incentives and grants, if the preservation of national natural resources were the norm. Exploitation still rules.
