What is Wildlife Conservation

Blog | September 22nd, 2014

There are literally hundreds of uninspiring definitions for wildlife conservation, which is puzzling since protecting life should always contain a measure of passion. Wildlife conservation is a coordinated effort to stop the loss of endangered species all around the globe, protecting all wildlife, endangered or not. The work involves protecting the habitat of animals, plants and marine life. The roles taken by wildlife foundations extend across a contrasting field of operation, incorporating the recovery of damaged environments, the transplanting of entire sub-species to other locales when land is no longer viable, and the compassionate treatment of wildlife through direct contact. The conservation ethic practices disciplines that include biology and engineering, sociological interactions and the complex politics reserved for nations determined to develop their land without realizing the cost to their local environment.

Mentioning passion once more, wildlife conservancy is the bond between man and nature, the need to ensure nature flourishes, but this is only the beginning of the work. Volunteers come to conservation agencies without qualifications, ready to work hard in the name of species survival, but individuals qualified in all of modern societies professional disciplines are also needed to support the delicate framework of what is a living, breathing organization. There will always be a need for the dedicated worker, cleaning oil from a guillemot or an enclave of ravaged penguins, but medical professionals can treat damaged wings, and engineers can create studies of the effects of a dam on a reservoir that’s a popular rest stop for a certain rare bird.

On the most distilled level, wildlife conservation still depends on the passion of individuals, on adults and kids with the empathy required to identify with all forms of life, but the work has evolved, expanding to take on the world stage. Conservationists are members of world councils, entering into war zones to see how the diversity of animal life in a devastated areas has been affected. They talk to political leaders in order to delineate new wildlife only areas, combating poachers at every turn. Wildlife conservation also fights for awareness, dedicating resources to altering the doubtful future of our planet. One key area, kids, involves making our younger listeners even more aware of the state of endangered species, raising awareness of dwindling resources such as a natural habitat, a forest or a lake.

The introduction of these outreach programs is just as crucial as changing policies, as ending fishing in severely depleted oceanic areas or stopping logging in South America. Make a child or adult conscious of wildlife and empathy increases, reducing any perceived boundaries between man and nature, for we all live on the same globe. Meanwhile, the fight for wildlife conservation continues on other fronts. Non-profit agencies rescue endangered groups of animals as they’re hunted, introducing breeding programs to hopefully save the species. At the end of the day that’s what the work comes down to, hard work and hope, saving animals, plants and sea life from natural threats and the unnatural ones, us.
