Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, respond to the following in 4–6 paragraphs:

Review the occurrences at Easter Island, and use this situation as a case study of poor stewardship that resulted in lack of sustainability. A discussion of Easter Island may be found in the Unit 5 Interactive Learning Materials area of the classroom.

  • Define stewardship and sustainability. Then, select either the Amazon Rainforest (deforestation is the issue) or the Bridger Teton National Forest located in Western Wyoming (possible oil drilling).
  • Discuss stewardship and sustainable resource use.
    • In your discussion, describe the issues or potential problems.
    • What are the environmental implications of deforestation if you choose the Amazon for your discussion?
    • What are the ramifications of drilling for oil in Bridger Teton National Forest if this is your topic selection?
  • Can either area be conserved through wise use, or should segments be preserved without any use?
  • Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.
  • Cite all references, including the Interactive Learning Materials.
