This paper provides a review of some of the most important concepts in what is generally considered the first book written on conservationism, Aldo Leopold's "A Sand County Almanac". The review focuses on Leopold's concept of a "land ethic" and what is required to bring it about.

From the Paper:

"Aldo Leopold is considered one of the fathers of conservationism, especially for the radically new land ethic he promotes in his book about his experiences at his summer shack along the banks of the Wisconsin River. As he writes; "The land ethic simply enlarges the boundaries of the community to include soils, waters, plants and animals or collectively the land." This review will provide an analysis of some of the main theories offered by Leopold in "A Sand County Almanac"..."
