Is conservation or preservation more important?



  1. 0 Votes

    Some would argue otherwise, but conservation is much more important than preservation. Conservation takes into consideration that we as humans are part of the environment. Humans have cultivated the surrounding environment in an effective fashion for hundreds of years. American Indians effectively managed the forests before Europeans settled in the New World. If an invasive species takes control of an ecosystem, preservation is not enough. When a species has become overpopulated in a given area, there may be serious consequences in competition for food and mates. Conservationism considers that the natural order is not to leave nature alone. Plants and animals have developed many symbiotic relationships; humans and their environment are no exception.
