Environmental ethicists and environmental scientists have a common goal, which is to better understand how we ought to relate to nature. Nevertheless, these two groups employ wildly different methods and premises, and sadly these scholars rarely interact. Much of my work is aimed at developing insight that emerges from the synthesis of science and ethics. My work in this area is often inspired by carnivore conservation, in particular the wolves and moose of Isle Royale.
