How do we implement the Principle of Ecological Integrity (Westra, 1994)? Does the latter only require the setting up of ghettos of protected Natural Areas as if the world were to become some kind of zoo in which what is left of Nature is to be set behind bars while mankind, as its custodian, is left outside looking in? In the affirmative, is there anything left to be done outside the cages besides enforcing the no-trespassing signs? More than half the population of the world lives in cities and the trend in urbanization is increasing. Can and should this trend be reversed? Is ecological integrity relevant at all to an urbanized world?
