Checkpoint: Conserve and Preserve Tania Torres After make a research about the meaning of terms preservation and conservation I found a lots of debates to the respect. After my research I can define conservation like the wise use of the natural resources maintaining the sustainability of them for future generations. The term preservation can be define as do not use the natural resources and maintain them as natural as possible. In other words avoid the human interference with the natural resources, to keep them naturals. Those terms create a great debate. For some, the humans cannot harvest forest natural resources in an environmental friendly way, but I believe that it is possible. I think that actually we have a lot of new technology that can be used to conserve our human resources and maintain the sustainability. I believe we could have the better of the two worlds. Sometimes the end justified the means. For example although it is great that actually we can have a public land that has remained virtually untouched by human presence, but I think that the proposed use for this land can beneficial for much more people than hisactual use. I think that how the speaker said in the video, actually energy companies have a lot of new environmental friendly technology that allow them to use the resources wisely and conserve the land.
