Conservation and Preservation
Conservation and preservation have the same frame work, but different ideas. Conservation is the sustainable use of natural resources; these include wildlife, air, water, and what we get from earth (, n.d.). Preservation is maintaining something in its present state, in this case the Bridger-Teton National Forest. I believe we should leave the forests in their natural state. I am inclined to the preservation of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. One example that defends my position is when the video stated that “It’s the largest intact temperate ecosystem left in the lower 48 states.” Another example that defends my position is the fact that there are wild and free-ranging bison herd there in the Jackson Hole area that is increasing and that they are the last of the great wildlife heard. Look at my first example, it is the largest intact temperature ecosystem left in the lower 48 states. Even if conservation is done, and done in an eco-friendly way, this will change because it will no longer be considered intact. My second example about the wild and free-bison is another great reason to preserve this forest. We do not know if the animals are going to be affected, we need to keep in mind that these are the lsat of the great wildlife heard, Reference (n.d.).
