“Conservation means the wise use of the earth and its resources for the lasting good of men” – Gifford Pinchot
World Nature Conservation Day acknowledges that a healthy environment is the foundation for a stable and healthy society.
Earth’s natural resources include air, minerals, plants, soil, water, and wildlife. Conservation is the care and protection of these resources so that they can be preserved for future generations. It includes maintaining diversity of species, genes, and ecosystems, as well as functions of the environment, such as nutrient cycling.
