CONSERVATION- VS- PRESERVATION
Nature is beautiful! Among all creatures, humans are the only ones made in God's image and have been given the right to have dominion over all His creations. Humans are capable of manipulating creation to their own advantage.
The words "preservation" and "conservation are often used interchangeably, but the two concepts are quite different. Conservation protects the environment through the responsible use of natural resources. Preservation protects the environment from harmful human activities.
Conservation means to reduce the usage of natural resources, to use natural resources more efficiently.
To preserve the natural resources, forests, wildlife, plants and biodiversity.
Protecting species, their habitats, and the ecosystems from extinction.
Methods of Environmental Conservation:
* Forest conservation
* Soil conservation
* Managing waste
* Reducing our water consumption
* Control pollution
* Create public awareness
Preservation means to protect or save natural resources in the present for the purpose of using them in the future. Preservation is associated with the protection of buildings, objects and landscapes. Act of keeping from destruction, decay, or any ill.
Conservation and Preservation are both equally important. Conservation seeks the proper use of nature, while preservation seeks protection of nature from use.
