You will be assigned to research a specific natural resource based on the first letter of your last name.
- If your last name begins with H to N, you must research Oceans.
In your initial post of at least 250 words, using the required resources and any additional credible resources that would enhance the strength of your argument, complete the following:
- Discuss the various direct and indirect environmental values (as seen in Chapter 1 of Environmental Policies) associated with the natural resource you were assigned.
- Describe one policy tension between your assigned natural resource and a threat to that resource.
- Evaluate the different worldviews (e.g., biocentricism, anthropocentrism) that influence the policy tension you just described and explain which worldview is most apparent in the policy tensions and why.
