The article reports on the argument between the Maricopa Audubon Society and environmental organization Audubon Arizona on the role played by business donations on the implementation of conservation policies in Phoenix, Arizona. Maricopa Audubon Society alleges the organization for receiving donation of 138,000 dollars from Resolution Copper Co. for its land exchange agreement with the state's federal government. It states that the deal will allow Resolutiona Copper to purchase 1,000 acres of land which will be used for the construction of a copper mine in Oak Flat. Herb Fibel, president of Maricopa, argues that the move will pose a threat to species inhabiting the area and violate the National Environmental Policy Act.
