    Humans' Role in Preserving Threatened Ecosystems

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    What role, if any, should we play in preserving those regions threatened by human encroachment?

    How should the interests of competing groups be balanced?

    What about when the habitat is not within U.S. borders? Many international conservation groups are working to say the rainforest--what rights do we have to interfere with how another sovereign nation chooses to manage its own lands? If the government of Bolivia is willing to allow millions of acres of jungle to be destroyed in order to promote the logging industry (which provides employment to their citizens), should we intervene? Why or why not?

    Can someone help me to be able to do this assignment? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
