Environmental stewardship.

Environmental stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices. Aldo Leopold (1887–1949) championed environmental stewardship based on a land ethic "dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it.

Different types of environmental stewards

There are 3 types of environmental stewards: doers, donors, and practitioners. Doers go out and help the cause by taking action. For example, the doers in an oil spill would be the volunteers that go along the beach and help clean up the oil from the beaches. A donor is the person that financially helps the cause. They can do anything from donating their money, to having galas or other fundraisers. They are typically governmental agencies. Lastly there are practitioners. They work on a day-to-day basis to steer governmental agencies, scientists, stakeholder groups, or any other group toward a stewardship outcome. Together these 3 groups make up environmental stewards and with the help keep the ecosystem running healthily. Anybody can be an environmental steward by being aware and knowledgeable of the world around them and making sure they do as little as possible to negatively impact our world. Without these groups it would be hard to get any sort of sustainability in our increasingly technology, pollution, industrial based world.

  • Because Joe Bastardi Says It So Well
    Joe Bastardi’s The Climate Chronicles: Inconvenient Revelations You Won’t Hear from Al Gore—And Others is simply a delightfully fun book to read. It’s also well reasoned.

  • Senator Whitehouse, Your New Wardrobe Is Ready
    One of the things I most appreciate about Joe Bastardi’s book The Climate Chronicles: Inconvenient Revelations You Won’t Hear from Al Gore—And Others is the long historical perspective he brings. Again and again he quotes alarmists about manmade global warming claiming that this or that event, or this or that series of events, or this or […]
