The course surveys the major international agreements addressing protection of wildlife and biological diversity, including efforts aimed at: conserving iconic species such as whales, elephants, and sea turtles from overharvesting; protecting critical habitats such as rainforests and coral reefs; and creating a global framework for responding to the general decline of the world’s natural heritage of biological diversity. When offered for one (1) credit in the summer, the course will address selected current environmental topics facing businesses in either the domestic or international context.
