ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION -SAVE TODAY & SERVIVE TOMORROW
CONTENTS INTRODUCTION The 3 R’s TYPES OF CONSERVATION Energy conservation Water conservation Plant conservation Soil conversation Mineral resources conversation. Why Conservation? How To Conserve?
INTRODUTION Conservation is an ethic of resource use, allocation, and protection. Its primary focus is upon maintaining the health of the natural world: its, fisheries, habitats, and biological diversity. Secondary focus is on materials conservation and energy conservation, which are seen as important to protect the natural world. Those who follow the conservation ethic and, especially, those who advocate or work toward conservation goals are termed conservationists. I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend? ~Robert Redford, Yosemite National Park dedication, 1985
The 3 R’s:
The 3 R’s “Find your own ways to make less trash, and help others to learn how to Reduce , Reuse , and Recycle .”
TYPES OF CONSERVATION:
TYPES OF CONSERVATION:
1. Energy conservation
2. Water conservation

5. Mineral resources conversation
The types of conservation can be many or few, depending on the focus of the individual or program that is aimed at conserving the Earth's resources. The two types that are considered to be of the greatest are water and energy conservation.
1.Energy conservation :
Energy conservation Energy conservation refers to efforts made to reduce energy consumption, and to preserve it for future generations. Energy conservation can be achieved through increased efficient energy use, in conjunction with decreased energy consumption and/or reduced consumption from conventional energy sources. There are two type of resources:- Renewable Resources Non Renewable Resources A THING WHICH BURNS NEVER RETURNS.
a. Solar Energy Conservation- Sun is the main source of the solar energy conservation type and the energy received from the sun in the form of radiation is absorbed and transformed into the heat energy. The heat energy collected by the solar collectors is used to produce steam with runs the turbine.
b. Wind Energy Conservation: Wind is caused due to absorption of solar energy on the earth surface and the rotation of the earth. Wind mills are used to extract energy from the wind and to produce mechanical work.
2. Water conservation :
:Water conservation refers to reducing the usage of water and recycling of waste water for different purposes such as cleaning, manufacturing, and agricultural irrigation. The goals of water conservation efforts include as follows: Sustainability . To ensure availability for future generations. Energy conservation . Water pumping, delivery, and wastewater treatment facilities consume a significant amount of energy. TODAY’S WASTAGE IS TOMORROW’S SHORTAGE.
Turn off tap while cleaning your teeth, shaving or washing your face. You can waste up to 9 liters a minute by just letting the water pour down the sink. Take a short shower rather than a bath could save you up to 400 liters a week. If you do have baths, just half fill them . Only use the washing machine and the dishwasher when you can put on a full load. It wastes both water and energy to run only a half full machine
Use a broom and bucket of water for washing down the patio rather than a steady flow of water from the hose. Use a sponge and bucket of water to clean your car or if you use the hose, ensure you use a shut off nozzle so the water is not constantly running. Fix any dripping tap, you can waste 90 litres a week
3. Soil conservation:
Soil conservation Soil conservation is a set of management strategies for prevention of soil being eroded from the earth’s surface or becoming...
