About Environmental Resource Management
Environmental resource management ~ is the management of the interaction and impact of human societies on the environment. It is not, as the phrase might suggest, the management of the environment itself.
Keeping the Ocean Blue through education for long term goals, and hosting service learning projects to teach our communities how we can easily make a direct impact to save the World's Ocean one stream and one beach cleanup at a time!
Environmental resources management aims to ensure that ecosystem services are protected and maintained for future human generations, and also maintain ecosystem integrity through considering ethical, economic, and scientific (ecological) variables.
Environmental resource management tries to identify factors affected by conflicts that rise between meeting needs and protecting resources. It is thus linked to environmental protection, sustainability and integrated landscape management. Read More:
