What do we mean by “conservation”? Well, conservation can be a lot of things. It could be engaging in sustainable actions at home, like recycling or composting, or cleaning up a natural area in your neighborhood like a river or field. It could be scientific research on plants and animals, teaching kids about the environment, managing a wildlife area, protecting native bees, planting trees, or fighting for clean air or water for all. Basically, conservation is any action that humans take to nurture and protect our amazing planet.
