Environmental Stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices.
There are three types of environmental stewards: doers, donors and practitioners. Doers go out and help the cause by taking action. For example, the doers in an oil spill would be the volunteers that go along the beach and help clean up the oil and rescue animals impacted. A donor is the person who financially helps the cause by donated money or hosting an event. Then there are practitioners who work on a day-to-day basis as scientists, participants in stakeholder groups or steer governmental agencies or work with any group towards a stewardship outcome. Together these groups help keep the ecosystem running healthily.
Anybody can be an environmental steward by being aware and knowledgeable of the world around them and making sure they do as little as possible to negatively impact our world. Without these groups, it would be hard to get any sort of sustainability in our increasingly industrial-based world.
