Conserving Resources

Resource conservation is the planned usage of natural resources to optimise their utility. Resources have to be used carefully and given time to get renewed.


Balancing the need to use resources and also conserve them for the future is called sustainable development.



There are many ways of conserving resources:


Energy Conservation – is the practice of decreasing the quantity of energy used by human beings.

"Each one of us can do our bit and not waste electricity or fuel"


Habitat Conservation – is the practice of preserving the habitat of wild animals and birds and prevent their extinction.

"People should be stopped from cutting down trees. Children can be careful while using paper and pencils which are made from trees."


Water Conservation – is reducing the use of fresh water.

"Do not waste water."


Wildlife Conservation - is the process of keeping certain wildlife populations, including endangered animals, at desirable levels.

"Hunting should be prohibited. Children should support the ‘Project Tiger’ Program started by the Government of India."


Soil Conservation - is the prevention of soil being eroded from the earth’s surface.


"Conservation biology" refers to the application of science to the conservation of populations, species, and ecosystems.



An ecosystem is a natural unit consisting of all plants, animals and micro-organisms (biotic factors) in an area functioning together with all of the non-living physical (abiotic) factors of the environment.

An ecosystem is a group of living and non-living components interacting together on a given physical landscape.
