David vs. Goliath: Danna Smith + Leo Woodberry vs. Big Conservation

Posted 23 minutes ago

With approximately $1 billion in annual revenue, The Nature Conservancy is the largest organization of its kind in America. Their stated mission is to “conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends” and they boldly claim to have “done more than anyone else to advance conservation around the world”. And yet, this large and powerful group is under fire from an array of progressive environmental justice advocates. This week on Sea Change Radio we welcome Reverend Leo Woodberry and Danna Smith to the show. Woodberry is pastor of Kingdom Living Temple in Florence, South Carolina and executive director of the nonprofit New Alpha Community Development Corporation, and Smith is executive director of Dogwood Alliance. They explain why they criticize The Nature Conservancy’s stance on carbon offsets, the use of wood pellets, and its dubious alliance with the wood products industry.
