NIMBY is the natural phenomenon of being TERRITORIAL. Short for 'not in my backyard', Nimby is used to describe residents who oppose property development near where they live.

A popular tactical tool, the word NIMBY is often used by property developers, supporters of same and pro development government decision makers in an attempt to destroy public support for residents, labelling those who oppose new developments within their own residential locality as selfish and subculture. However, NIMBY, the art of being territoral has been practiced by most living creatures big or small since nature created them to present day.
