“Environmental stewardship is the responsibility to take care of our natural resources to ensure that they are sustainably managed for current and future generations” (Responsible Stewardship and Sustainable Resource Management, 2013). Sustainable resources are those resources that are replenished at a rate equal to, or greater than, the rate of consumption (What are Sustainable resources, 2013). Stewardship of natural resources is important for both individuals and organizations. By managing resource usage ethically and responsibly, good stewards of natural resources ensure healthy and beauty of the environment for the future. Stewardship begins at home. If everyone were to manage, care and steward the natural resources with which they have been entrusted or have access, large scale problems such as pollution and animal extinction that occur from mismanagement and poor stewardship of resources can be prevented. One may ask, how society can maintain stewardship. It’s not easy but it starts with understanding the dynamics at work in the environment and the connection among environmental protection, economic prosperity and social equity and well-being. People can work together to make sustainable development a reality. I personally don’t believe good stewardship and sustainable use of natural resources are being practiced. The farmers are burning the land to clear and make some space with isn’t a good thing for the environment. Having all that fire, isn’t safe for the community either. Trees is what a lot of animals eat without them, we wouldn’t have any animals. They go hungry sue to the lack of trees. In my opinion, if they are cutting trees down, they should just simply plant another. The suggestions I would make is that the people of Brazil should come together and talk before making a decision. People just need to understand that the Amazon is a beautiful natural resource and should learn how to use it wisely.
