Preservation vs. Conservation 

 

What is the difference?

·       Wildlife preservation is a form of wildlife management by not allowing the land for use. Preservation protects animals by not allowing any activities on the preserved land that the animals live in, this is effective in protecting many endangered species in the U.S.

 

·       Wildlife conservation is a form of wildlife management in which regulated use is allowed such as hunting, fishing, and trapping. Wildlife conservation methods helps prevent overpopulation which results in less deaths in animals by starvation, parasites, and diseases, and more due to controlled causes. An example of controlled cause is that hunters are able to kill and use the animal rather than that animal starving to death or getting hit by a car. Animals die in the wild all the time, although conservation allows populations to be controlled.
