  13. 13. Wildlife conservation
  14. 14. What is Wildlife Conservation? Wildlife conservation is the practice of protecting endangered plant and animal species and their habitats. Among the goals of wildlife conservation are to ensure that nature will be around for future generations to enjoy and to recognize the importance of wildlife and wilderness lands to humans.
  15. 15. WHY SHOULD WE CONSERVE WILDLIFE? • It is necessary to conserve wildlife because it results in undesirable consequences for the whole ecosystem. • Conservation preserves the ecological diversity and our life support systems. • It also helps in the preservation of the genetic diversity of plants and animals for better growth of species and breeding. • The destruction of forests and wildlife is not just a biological issue. The biological loss is strongly correlated with the loss of cultural diversity.
  16. 16. HOW CAN WE HELP? • Laws should be made to impose a total ban on poaching or capturing of any animal or bird belonging to an endangered species. • The natural habitats of wild animals and birds should be preserved by establishing National parks and Sanctuaries throughout the country. • The Government department connected with the conservation of wildlife should conduct a periodic survey in all the forests. • The unauthorized felling of forest trees for timber trade and fuelwood should be curbed immediately.
  17. 17. CONCLUSION Increased understanding about the world’s current wildlife situation and an increased emphasis on education will give future generations an opportunity to experience nature to its fullest extent
