Assignment 5
1. Just 150 years ago, nature seemed so vast and fertile that it didn’t seem possible that human action could have a lasting impact on wildlife population. Thus for the most part, there were no efforts to preserve or conserve. Do you see similar situation today, where denial, mismanagement, or poor judgment is occurring?
2. There are several points of view concerning the importance of maintaining biological diversity. For example, environmental groups in the Northwest want to restrict logging to save the habitat of an endangered bird. Timber companies insist that the well-being of one bird type is not as important as the well-being of the population who will be
affected if the restriction causes the companies to lay off workers. How do you respond to these arguments? Is there a possible compromise?
3. What major environmental threats affect the National Parks? How could the National Parks in the United States be used more sustainably?

Each question should be answered with one typed page, thank you.
