Approaches to Species Conservation

Primary Post “The surrogate species approach is the most cost effective means for establishing national and global conservation priorities.” Conservationists are challenged with the problem of protecting a range of species at minimal costs. As such conservationists have to prioritize to help those in most need of assistance or trouble (Myers et al. 2000).
