Abstract
"Environmental ethics is concerned with describing the values carried by the non-human world and prescribing an appropriate ethical response to ensure conservation and restoration of those values. As such, it has to provide information crucial for making environmental decisions. Despite the various and visible accomplishments in regard to biological diversity at the world scale-level, the countries that harbor the greatest diversity have not been able to slow present trends of environmental degradation. An effective environmental policy requires more than shifts of consciousness from a human oriented to a nature- oriented perspective. Likewise, it demands a strategy that goes beyond economic valuation."
