Everyone knows how the National Audubon Society supports limiting OHV use. Look at the situation on NC's Outer Banks, so before you you buy that new Tundra think about what they are doing with the profit from your sale.

Toyota donates $20M to Audubon
Associated Press

DETROIT -- Toyota Motor Corp. is giving the National Audubon Society $20 million for conservation projects and training of environmental leaders.

The Audubon Society said today the grant is the largest in its 103-year history. The grant will fund the TogetherGreen program for five years.

Toyota says it also will encourage its 36,000 U.S. employees to volunteer for the Audubon Society.

The donation could help Toyota burnish its green credentials after facing criticism last fall from the Natural Resources Defense Council and other environmental groups. They were angry Toyota didn't support a measure to increase U.S. fuel economy standards to 35 miles per gallon by 2020.

The New York-based Audubon Society was not one of the groups criticizing Toyota.


Pass this on to your friends.

Hopefully Jeep would donate to the opening of more OHV parks or access not the limiting of.

Ummm... I think you missed the part about Audubon being Anti Access and wanting to close down OHV usage. In fact they are the ones Trying to close down outer banks in NC right now... and Toyota is giving them funds.
