Before you come to class, calculate your ecological footprint
Alternative footprint calculators:
Best foot forward
Ecology fund (fast and simple)
Try different calculators, and change some of the input data for an informal "sensitivity analysis" (e.g., country in which to live). We will discuss the results in class
Before you come to class, download and review the code of ethics from one of the following organizations:

Society of American Foresters code of ethics
Society for Conservation Biology code of member ethics
Society for Range Management code of ethics (bottom of second page of this pdf file)
The Wildlife Society code of ethics (starts halfway down the first page of this pdf file)
