The World Conservation Strategy
THE WORLD CONSERVATION STRATEGY
by Antonio C. Antonio
January 1, 2015
Preservation is synonymous to protection, safeguarding and safekeeping. Preservation, as an environmental term, focuses on the preservation, protection or restoration of the natural environment, natural ecosystems, vegetation and wildlife. Towards this end (preservation of nature and natural resources), a wide range of political, legal, social and scientific strategies have been adopted by societies and governments throughout the world. Such efforts towards preservation gave rise to the following conservation objectives:
1. Planned use of natural and environmental resources of the planet;
2. Preservation of maximum number of different plant and animal species in order to retain the genetic resource base of the biosphere; and,
3. Provision of recreational facilities in landscapes largely unaltered by recent advances in technology.
These conservation objectives form the core principles in the world conservation strategy.
Just my little thoughts…
