SCI 275 Week 2 Conservation Versus
Preservation

Resource: Chapters 11 and 12 of Environmental
Science
.



Conservation is the careful and sustainable management of a resource so that it
can be used indefinitely. In contrast, preservation sets aside wild areas so
that they remain untouched. Under preservation guidelines resources are not used. Under conservation guidelines
resources are used.



Select one example of conservation and one example of preservation from
either Chapters 11 and 12 of Environmental Science
Your example can be based on a wilderness area, a biological resource (plants
or animals), a natural resource (mineral, energy, etc.), or an environmental
law presented within these chapters.



Answer the following questions. Each response
should be 2-4 sentences in length. Use two reputable sources and your textbook
to develop your answers. 


  • Describe your examples. Explain
    why these examples represent either conservation or preservation.

  • Explain whether these examples
    successfully meet their respective objectives. Does the conservation
    example successfully manage the resource so that it can used indefinitely?
    Does the preservation example successfully set aside the resource so that
    it is let wild and untouched?

  • Describe one way in which
    conservation success is measured in the assigned reading? Do you think
    that this is an effective measurement for conservation success?

  • Think of two other ways
    (environmental, ecological, economic, social, cultural, historical, etc.)
    in which conservation success could be measured?
