About Conservation

Conservation refers to the careful management and sustainable use of natural resources, including land, water, minerals, plants, and animals. The primary goal of conservation is to protect and preserve these resources to ensure their continued availability for present and future generations. Conservation efforts are aimed at maintaining biodiversity, protecting ecosystems, and mitigating the negative impacts of human activities such as pollution, habitat destruction, and overexploitation of natural resources.
Conservation encompasses various strategies and practices, including habitat restoration, species protection, sustainable agriculture, responsible forestry, water conservation, and energy efficiency. It also involves raising awareness about environmental issues, advocating for policy changes, and promoting sustainable lifestyles.

Overall, conservation plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance of ecosystems, supporting biodiversity, and safeguarding the planet's natural heritage for the benefit of both humans and wildlife.
