It depends on which environmental organization you ask. The most 
extreme position seems to be taken by the Natural Resources Defense 
Council, which would ban the cultivation of non-indigenous species, 
period. Most other organizations, however, are much calmer about it. 
I and probably most other people in PBS and NARGS are strong 
supporters, for instance, of the Nature Conservancy.
