Looking back at Aldo Leopold’s A Sand County Almanac (1949) provides a personal account of his time spent away from the city with the land. His writings often demand a compassionate response in the face of a loss of life. He suggests that we as humans are stewards of the land. We have a responsibility and he is therefore also a champion for accountability. He is concerned with the community of plants and animals of which he is a part of but even further he is concerned with both the biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) components of said communities. What do you think about making decisions for those who arguably are unable to? Have you ever needed to do this yourself? It is my hope that we can discuss both if and how Leopold’s stories might contribute to ethical practices.
