Environmental Ethics Working Group

The Environment Ethics Working Group provides faculty and students from all disciplines the opportunity to study and discuss current research in environmental philosophy and ethics, with a focus on issues related to biodiversity and nonhuman animals.

Topics, readings, projects and speakers are decided upon by group members on an ongoing basis. Examples of topics include conservation philosophy, wild animal welfare, the ethics of conservation biotechnology, the concept of ‘naturalness’, and the moral status of liminal animals. The group aims to encourage and develop research projects and collaborations by its members.

If you are interested in joining this working group, or have any questions about it, inquires should be directed to Professor Ronald Sandler, or Professor Mark Wells.
