Conservation ethics (moral beliefs, attitudes, intuitions, and norms regarding other species) evolve to promote adaptive conservation behaviours, and will take on different contours in different places.
Integrating ecology and evolution into our understanding of conservation ethics can help explain why people value other species at all, why we value some species more strongly than others, and why this varies from place to place.
