Looking through the crates into her eyes, I reflected on how Aldo Leopold once took part in that policy, then eloquently challenged it. So we as a whole must conserve on our supplies of natural objects with our exponentially growing population. Humans are part of a community that includes plants, animals, and the landscape, and Leopold argues that humans need to do a better job of respecting and caring for the natural world.
Aldo showed an aptitude for observation, spending hours counting and cataloging birds near his home. I tried to appreciate it more for its historical value but still, had a hard time getting through it. By the 1930s, Leopold was the nation's foremost expert on wildlife management. Despite that this book includes one of my favorite quotes as an ecologist, considering Leopold's reputation as a conservationist, much of this book is kind of horrifying.

The importance of allegories and symbolism in nature writing is not to be overlooked. Hearing of this development, the teenaged Leopold decided on forestry as a vocation. Leopold thinks the new field of ecology is the best way to understand the natural world and the round river of the ecosystem. Leopold's first language was German, although he mastered English at an early age. He believes that to truly understand the natural world, a person must first understand how complicated and interconnected the ecosystem is, which cannot happen if everyone only specializes.

In Africa, Asia, and North, Central and South America, our environmental study abroad programs are designed to involve small groups of students in ongoing community and ecological research projects, finding and implementing solutions to real wildlife conservation and sustainability issues.
Leopold points out that we have yet to think in. Leopold's headstone at his family plot in Aspen Grove Cemetery in He married Estella Bergere in northern New Mexico in 1912 and they had five children together.
