Maintaining High Value to Africa’s Wildlife is Crucial

Conservation vs Preservation – Bringing Clarity to the Confusion

In the context of the natural world ‘Conservation’ and ‘Preservation’ are the two essential arms of ‘wildlife management’. They are not synonyms because they each have a distinct and vital purpose.
