Biodiversity conservation is the protection and management of the world’s biological resources, which includes both terrestrial and marine ecosystems. It also includes the sustainable use of these resources and educating others about the importance of biodiversity. Biodiversity conservation helps ensure that future generations enjoy nature’s benefits and prevents environmental degradation.
- Biodiversity conservation is a valuable resource for sustainable development.
- Biodiversity sustains nature’s services, including food and fresh water, clean air, fuel and minerals, habitat for wild animals, and a healthy environment for all species.
- Biodiversity needs protection from risky human practices such as hunting, logging, farming, and development.
Human population growth and resource extraction without biodiversity conservation can be highly unsustainable.
Biodiversity conservation is the protection and management of the world’s biological resources. This includes both terrestrial and marine ecosystems. It also includes the sustainable use of these resources (Groves et al., 2002). Biodiversity conservation is essential for maintaining the planet’s biodiversity, which provides vital ecosystem services that support human health and well-being (Diaz et al., 2006). Biodiversity forms the foundation of all ecosystems on our planet. Without healthy ecosystems, we would not be able to survive. Biodiversity also provides many essential services, such as food, clean water, and air quality regulation (Smith et al., 2013).
