I'd like ten (10) examples of how property rights have been applied to
resolve  environmental problems.  That is, there should be 10
different problems that have been resolved through property rights. 
Please do not use resources, as I already am aware of that

By "property rights" I mean anything from individual or corporate
ownership of environmental resources, to village, or small-group
control of a resource. So if 10 neighbors have acquired ownership over
a park, for instance, and have cleaned it up, that'd be great. Cities
are not small groups for purposes of this question. The environmental
problem could be anything from resource depletion, to clean-up of
pollution, to how the Nature Conservancy has purchased some piece of
land and turned it into a protected environment, to how a neighborhood
has recovered a plot of land or park in a bad part of a city.  Large
and small examples are welcome.

An example of how I'd like the research presented would be:

1. Zimbabwe's CAMPFIRE program allows small villages to "own"
elephants, and benefit from their preservation and conservation.  See for a
positive view.  See XXX for a view of how CAMPFIRE hasn't worked.

There is no answer at this time.
