Which statement is true about conservation versus preservation?

A. Conservation favors hunters.

B. Conservation does not allow natural resources to be used.

C. Preservation favors hunters.

D. Preservation allows natural resources to be used.

A

Answer: A. Conservation favors hunters.

Conservation can simply be defined as the controlled use of resources under the guidance of physical laws. Preservation on the other hand is the act of keeping safe, i.e., leaving something in its original state without any form of altering. In recent years, maintaining the entire state of the environmental system has become very important all over the world which is why the concept of conservation and preservation have been adapted as ways of ensuring this feat. With this, the correct answer is A because conservation still allows the intervention of humans as long as it is done subtly and is “replaced” or “repaired” later.
