We are facing overpopulation and a growing food crisis in many parts of the world. After reading your assignments last week, do you think such crises are the result of poor planning, food hoarding, climate change or a combination of all of the above? As you read, some scientists think overpopulation is not the problem after all. Meanwhile AIDS is decimating populations in Sub-Saharan African, leaving millions of orphans with little means of support. What implications for conservation do you think these two demographic shifts will have in the future? Discuss and use other examples to illustrate your point.
