This document clearly outlines many of the options that are available to finance conservation projects including: government revenue allocations; grants and donations; tourism revenues; real estate and development rights; fishing industry revenues; energy and mining revenues and for profit investments. The business planning approach is discussed and case studies are presented. Spergel and Moye present the components of a feasibility analysis (financial, legal, administrative, social, political and environmental) before launching into a detailed explanation of each funding mechanism with examples for each. Many additional references are presented throughout the document.
