1. How would the following environmental ethics evaluate this case?

Therefore, the environment would be required to serve the needs of humans, which obviously means that humans who are provided jobs as a result of the company, must be given the ability to sustain their existence at the expense of the environment.

The Saga of the Great Apes

I need some help with a case study from the book "Watershed, Chapter 6: The Extended Family, The Saga of the Great Apes"

I need to focus on the following:

? Describe the responsibilities that arise from the ethical positions of the parties involved.
? Describe how the issue has been or should be resolved.

Here's an outline that I have constructed but really feel as though I am not on the right track... I feel like I may be missing some key elements.
I. Describe the responsibilities that arise from the ethical positions of the parties involved.
a. Environmentalists/Scientists
i. Experimentation
ii. Demography, reproduction, and cultural behavior
b. Zoo persons, media persons, and the general public
i. Invasive research
ii. Preserving Nature
II. Describe how the issue has been or should be resolved.
a. Conservation of the great apes
i. Natural Habitat
b. Enhance the quality of life of the great apes in captivity
i. Refrain from using the great apes as subjects in invasive studies
ii. Promote scientific understanding through non-invasive techniques

I need a good foundation & detailed outline for the two bullet points above. I then have to construct a PowerPoint presentation of 7 to 10-slides including exceptional graphics, charts, images and/or other material to enhance the paper and complete about an 800 word paper. Some help, direction, and ideas for this part as well would be greatly appreciated. I will complete the paper and presentation myself, of course!
