Free UW wildlife course would please Aldo Leopold

Online class explores hunting and role in conservation.  Source: www.greenbaypressgazette.com

GR:  I’m thinking Leopold would be appalled.  Like many of us, Leopold grew more protective of wildlife as he aged.  He proposed the “land ethic” not long before his death. He concluded that Earth ecosystem stability requires that we treat animals as our equals, not our resources.  This course description suggests the course content will focus on ideas that Leopold left behind as he saw nature succumbing to relentless pressure of the exploding human population.  Please convince me it isn’t so.
