Synopsis by Alice Day
As increasing concerns about its environment have proliferated, Australian politicians have found it necessary to adapt to the new issues of ecological importance. The old attitudes regarding the exploitation of natural resources must make way for conservation efforts. These attempts will not result in rich profits, but will mean a healthier outlook for Australia's future. Unique Continent - Australian Environmental Studies: The New Ethic looks at these new topics of discussion, including the preservation of old growth forests and endangered animal and plant species.
