Both are strategies to protect Nature, so what's the difference?
Preservation seeks the protection of Nature from use. Natural areas are preserved in their original forms and totally protected from the harmful effects of human activity. Preservation benefits the wellbeing of all living things on Earth.
Conservation seeks the proper use of Nature. Natural areas are changed, yet protected through sustainable use and responsible management. Conservation benefits human growth and urban sprawl with pro-Nature consciousness and action.
