MetadataShow full item record
Rolston replies to Robin Attfield's and Andrew Brennan's criticisms of his claims that sometimes one ought to conserve nature preferentially to caring for the poor. Tiger conservation in Royal Chitwan National Park, Nepal, does and ought to give tiger conservation priority over some of the desires for development of locally impoverished peoples. Ben Minteer argues that nature conservation ought to be "culturally-occupied"; Rolston argues for respect for intrinsic value in nature.
