The purpose of the activity is to make students consider several factors (discussed in lecture and lab during the semester) when it comes to biodiversity, ecology, and conservation.
Goals: Our main objective is to challenge students to come up with an argument about allocating funding to a potential national park/reserve using information they had just been provided, and applying what they have learned in previous lectures and laboratory activities.
Intended Outcomes: After learning about population genetics, the species concept, and ecology, they should be able to connect what they have learned throughout the semester and realize how people can use different arguments from distinct perspective to protect what is important to them.
