I still don't think it makes since to buy leases of land form the government, $400,000 to preserve a small patch of trees for $25 years.

It would make more sense if the land was permanently auctioned off. Then the environmentalists don't even have an expense. They have an asset they can sell off at any point to buy other land they value preserving more. And they could convince more 3rd party funders of their project to chip in knowing that it is financially sound.

You then can add recreational elements to it to try to raise a revenue and use the revenue to service loans that could be used to acquire more land.. permanently.
