What is ecological exploitation?



  1. 0 Votes

    Ecological exploitation is a term that has been used frequently in discussions about the fate of Armenia’s Tehgut Forest. A company has planned an open-pit copper mine there, but entrepreneur Ruben Shakhkyan has envisioned a gentler, more sustainable use of the forest’s resources. He has envisioned an “ecological exploitation” of the forest, meaning that his plan would still maintain the natural ecology and balance of the forest. His plan is to produce local vodka, jam, wine, and honey using plants found in the forest, which would be far better than the strip mine for the environment and would still provide the local people with jobs and income.

    So, in general, ecological exploitation refers to using resources (mainly renewable resources) in a way that does not greatly hurt the environment or destroy the source.
