    Re: Is this sentence correct?

    Not really. Their drive to protect nature is what makes them conservationists.

    It's a bit like saying "Rocks have always been rather rock-like."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Yes, it's grammatical but, as Barb suggested, it's a bit pointless.
