Conservation mainly depicts preserving the natural resources for the upcoming future generations. Our environment comprises many natural resources which plays a significant role and cannot be developed artificially. Hence the main aim of conservation is to preserve the natural resources, forests, wildlife, plants and biodiversity.
Forest and wildlife
- To preserve the vast diversity of plants and animals we should conserve these resources and use them judiciously.
- A great variety of plants and animals exist on earth. They are essential for the well-being and survival of mankind. Hence we should conserve forests and wildlife.
- Biodiversity is the variety of plants, animals and microorganisms generally found in an area. Biodiversity conservation is the protection and management of biodiversity to obtain resources for sustainable development.
Conservation of the environment means the preservation of forests, land, water bodies, and minerals, fuels, natural gases, etc. To assure that all these continue to be available in profusion.
- Deforestation can be prevented by Reforestation.
- Reforestation is restocking of the destroyed forests by planting new trees. The planted trees should generally be of the same species which were found in that forest.
- Care and habitation need to be provided to extinct species and efforts need to be taken to save them from becoming extinct.
