The Species Approach to Sustaining Biodiversity

WEEK 3 DISCUSSION GS 104
 
The Species Approach to Sustaining Biodiversity
Review the following statements and choose one that best describes your feelings towards wildlife.   Defend the statement you choose by providing at least three reasons for your point of view.

  • As long as it stays in its space, wildlife is okay.
  • As long as I do not need its space, wildlife is okay.
  • I have the right to use wildlife habitat to meet my own needs.
  • When you have seen one redwood tree, elephant, or any other form of wildlife, you have seen them all, so lock up a few of each species in a zoo or wildlife park and don not worry about protecting the rest.

Wildlife should be protected.
