conservationistconservationconservationists
Conservation's goals include protecting species from extinction, maintaining and restoring habitats, enhancing ecosystem services and protecting biological diversity.

The early conservation movement included fisheries and wildlife management, water, soil conservation, and sustainable forestry.

Ecosystem services

Conservation's goals include protecting species from extinction, maintaining and restoring habitats, enhancing ecosystem services and protecting biological diversity.

Evidence-based conservation

There has recently been a movement towards evidence-based conservation which calls for greater use of scientific evidence to improve the effectiveness of consecration efforts.
