Abstract

In contemporary times, the scenario of the environmental crisis has created serious doubts about the future of the Natural Environment. Most scientists have begun to believe that if the current human behavior towards nature continues to exist, the hope for sustainable life will be lost entirely. Considering this, it is necessary for man to modify and correct his behavior towards nature. Though ethics has historically been centered on relationships between human beings it is now getting focused on man- nature interaction. It requires modification of human behavior in order to correct the impacts of human activities on Nature. To attain this, both ethics and ecology are needed simultaneously. Ecological studies help us to develop an understanding of Natural systems and associated laws and regulations. In contrast, ethical studies give us a sense of defining what right and wrong behaviors towards the Natural systems, flora, and fauna is. This article attempts to discuss some links between ethical concerns and ecology for nature conservation.
