Wild 591: Conservation Ethics
Two Credit, 3-Day Workshop
October 5-7 2012
Presented by Professors Michael Nelson, Oregon State University and John Vucetich, Michigan Technological University.
Environmental professionals and graduate and upper-level undergraduates are invited to learn how to apply the principles of conservation ethics in a transparent, rational, and critical manner to issues in conservation and management.
The workshop focuses on specific challenges in conservation ethics as identified by the working group. The outcome of these working groups is a deeper understanding of the ethical justification for various solutions to the challenge of concern, an increased basis for consensus among stakeholders, and a resource for decision makers.
What students are saying:
"This is workshop is a fun and challenging way to explore the ethical issues that our biology classes cannot teach."
"The professors do a wonderful job inspiring the students and really pressing them to make hard choices."
"Skills gained in these three days are invaluable and entirely applicable to fields outside the conservation realm as well."
Space is limited.
