(C) Native Americans, with their intimate knowledge of the ecology of the land, helped to rescue - correct
(D) having intimate knowledge of the ecology of the land, Native Americans helped the rescue of helped the rescue of - passive
(E) knowing intimately the ecology of the land, Native Americans helped to rescue no relative pronoun

You're right, it's C.

I had chosen E, prefering "knowing intimately" to "intimate knowledge" which sounded so bad to me...

^ C ^

>> "in the rescuing of" or "in the rescue of" is not a true usage so A, B and D are out.

>> between C and E, C is clear and it is better we start the choice with "Native Americans"
