Unemployment caused by environmental conservation


Environmental groups and conservationists have hurt the traditional economies of native peoples, increasing unemployment. For example, the banning of seal hunting has ruined the Inuit people in Greenland. Conservation of whales, even those which are not in danger of becoming extinct, has driven nearly all whale hunters into other fields of work or unemployment.
