Have you heard of a MOOC? It stands for Massive Open Online Course, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison is hosting one this winter called “The Land Ethic Reclaimed: Perceptive Hunting, Aldo Leopold and Conservation.” The three week online course begins on January 26, and there is no registration fee to participate. The course leaders say that all learners are encouraged and welcome to participate, whether they are active hunters, hunting-curious, or simply nature enthusiasts. The course will provide students with an understanding of the historical legacy of wildlife management and recreational hunting as a part of conservation, the role of wildlife in ecosystems, the importance of ethics in guiding management decisions and hunter choices, and the politics and economics of controversies surrounding game and non-game management, hunting, and conservation.
