Sustainable Land Use 8 – Conservation

Conservation is a broad concept which involves scientific, ethical, moral, economic and political perspectives. Generally, conservation means the protection, preservation and careful management of natural resources. To an environmentalist it may mean preserving wilderness; for a forester it may be to produce a sustainable harvest of timber, while to a farmer conservation may mean to apply land management practices that focus on soil conservation.


We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
