Lambert, Joanna E. (2019) The intrinsic value of nature. Animal Sentience 27(13)
Adrian Treves, Francisco J. Santiago-Ávila, and William S. Lynn, Just preservation
Treves et al. explain the need to preserve the rights of nonhuman species, human youth, and future generations. Although conservation biology has claimed to have an intrinsic valuation ethic since its inception in the 1980s, many aspects of the field have taken a decidedly anthropocentric and instrumentalist trajectory. This has important consequences for conservation-related policy and practice at all scales: local, regional, and global.
