Conservation of nature means the protection of species from extinction or harm. It can include maintaining and restoring habitats, and protecting  biological diversity as well as preventing the wasteful use of resources.

What are Some Current Methods of Conservation?

There are many organisations involved in conservation projects across the globe.  These organisations specialise in different forms of conservation, from re-wilding projects which attempt to return habitats back to their more natural state before they suffered harm, to educating people on the need to protect different species. Nature reserves and also many zoos are involved in supporting breeding programmes for endangered creatures or reintroducing them into the wild.

Other organisations work to develop alternatives to using non renewable fuels. You can find out more about alternative energy sources in our  video here:
