International Union for Conservation of Nature Bulletin (IUCN), Volume 4 Number 5.
International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, Morges, (Switzerland).
Compiled in this newsletter are activities, viewpoints, reports, book reviews, and conference proceedings emanating from the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). Principle items deal with viewpoints of politics and conservation and the International Workshop on Environmental Studies in Higher Education and Teacher Training held at Althouse College of Education, London, Ontario, Canada, September, 1972. The first considers the technique of questioning political candidates by the electorate in an effort to get their opinions or stand on conservation issues. An abridged questionnaire used by the Venezuelan Society of Natural Sciences for this purpose is reproduced and searches the areas of population and economic growth, economic development and conservation, pollution, protection of natural areas, administration of resources, and natural areas, tourists and recreation. The latter item presents conclusions from the International Workshop which stress developments needed in the field of decision-making on issues dealing with environmental education for three areas: higher education, teacher education and professional fields. Additional Bulletin items include recommendations for a crocodile saving program; conservation meetings; a list of the largest national parks of the world; World Wildlife Fund news; six book reviews; and miscellaneous notes.
