Wilderness Legislation and Extinction!
Just a couple of questions:
First, I know that the Wilderness Act of 1964 allows Congress to designate a wilderness area, but I am a bit confused why it is controversial. Do people think that it is too much, or not enough? (Question 23 in Chap 8 study guide)
And then, for ecological extinction to occur, does the species even have to exist in the wild anymore? Or can it just be in zoos/aquariums and stuff? And what are examples of ecologically extinct species? (Question 2 in Chap 9 study guide)
