It is necessary to newly establish the notion of moral community in which only human beings have been regarded as membership at the era of ecological crisis, in the postmodern society. We should accept the notion of moral community focused in principle on the preservation of an integration, a stability, a beauty in biotic community. One the base of this notion, we have to morally consider human beings, nonhuman animals, plants, non-living things, furthermore the biotic community as a whole, as well as to support strong human rights related directly with human survivals. Moral education, which based on the notion of reestablished moral communities, should be born again as environmental ethic education which is directed toward establishing a coexistent natural view, cultivating ecological sensibility, putting natural preservation consciousness into action.
