Cultural diversity, human subsistence, and the national park ideal

Environmental Ethics 9 (2):147-158 (1987)
Out of all the possible categories of protected areas, the most widely used around the world has been the national park. The reasons behind this predominance have colored the entire international conservation movement. I look at the ethical implications of the national park ideal ’s phenomenal global success. Working from two assumptions-that human cultural diversity is good and desirable, and that there is a definite relation between such diversity and protected area conservation-I suggest that what is needed most right now is a clarification and refocusing of the debate on this issue
