TERM PAPER When thinking of a topic for the term paper, any environmental issue could be potentially addressed. Consider, though, that you will have to focus on a study area, and that you will need to discuss related conservation measures that can be applied to help solve or prevent the problem. Conservation measures include: (1) particular policies designed to protect the environment (like hunting regulations, forestry concessions, pollution regulations), (2) resource management plans, (3) protected-area establishment or management, (4) management of buffer zones, (5) ex-situ conservation measures (like zoos, genetic material libraries, arboretums, botanical gardens, etc.), (6) non-profit initiatives, (7) environmentalist grassroots actions, (8) subsidies, (9) market incentives, (10) international conventions and treaties, (11) renewable energy proposals, (12) sustainable food production, among many others. The final paper should include the following sections. Sections don't need to be labelled, and if they are, they can have different titles and include subheadings.

In addition, make sure to connect your paper with a more general narrative associated with the environmental problem at stake. Towards the end of the introduction, include a couple of sentences about conservation measures or possible solutions for the issue. No matter how dire the situation being related, try to be optimistic about a better future. 2. Background (2-2.5pages) Describe the study area, addressing its natural and human aspects. Do not include an extensive review of the geography of the place, but do highlight aspects that will allow the reader to understand the Page 1 of 2
