Environmental ethics expert presents at Stetson
Stetson University College of Law hosted EPA senior enforcement attorney Mike Walker as part of the Edward and Bonnie Foreman Biodiversity Lecture series on Sept. 29. A crowd of students, faculty, staff and members of the community gathered to hear Walker speak in the Great Hall.
Walker discussed how diversity is the key to stability in ecology.
Trained as a biologist-botanist after the renowned Aldo Leopold, Walker has been called one of the most influential figures in the development of environmental ethics.
Walker, who works at the U.S. EPA headquarters, handles major civil and criminal environmental law enforcement matters throughout the U.S.
Leopold was a conservationist who is considered the father of wildlife management and of the U.S. wilderness system.
The event was co-sponsored by Stetson’s Institute for Biodiversity Law and Policy and Environmental Law Society.
