Conservation and Preservation check pt

Conservation is the sustainable use of natural resources including wildlife, water, air, and earth deposits. Some of these natural resources may be renewable or non-renewable. The conservation of renewable resources like trees involves making sure that we are not using more than what we are able to replace. The conservation of non-renewable resources like fossil fuels involves ensuring that we are only using them when we need to. Preservation is maintaining the earth keeping it in its original condition. Some areas of the Earth are, so far, untouched by humans. This is due to the concern that mankind is encroaching onto the environment at such a rate that many untamed landscapes are being given over to farming, industry, housing, tourism and other human developments, and that we our losing too much of what is 'natural'. I, personally, do not think that humans should harvest forest resources. I think that they should leave the forests along. I say this because we are driving our wildlife out of their natural habitats and some are dying as a result of this. I think that the forests should be left at their natural resources and we should not use it to benefit our way of life. I think that we should come up with an alternative to some of the resources we are using from the forest to benefit our lifestyle. I am on the side of preservation. I think that things should be left as natural as possible. That was the way it was before mankind, and the wildlife was not threatened in any way.
