If the right question comes up on the exam tomorrow, I'm going to end up with a pretty feminist answer. But hopefully relevant - "influence of individuals on conservation" - and noting the discrepancy between the male:female ratio of 'known conservationists' [which is a little enough pool as it is] and the global ratio male:female ratio...thus using female examples in my essay: Rachel Carson (sensible, scientific, 50s-60s, big in environmental movement, global); Julia Butterfly (modern, activist, a little 'out there', 'any publicity is good publicity') and Harriet Hemenway (late 19th century, socialite activism, created a conservation society still big today, local. And hopefully covering enough diversity in time-span, technique, effect and spatial impact (the module ends in 'global and local scale') to gain me some marks.

I would really like to write this essay. I think in the end that means more to me than gaining some extra marks for writing a more typical essay.

Now I am off to revise in the park with Roberts. (Yes, albalark, I put on sunscreen. (: See, I am learning!)

I think I can I think I can I think I can.
