Encyclopedia > Conservationists

Conservationists are those people who tend to more highly rank the wise use of the Earth's resources and ecosystems. Their efforts often take them into conflict with vested interests and developers. Wise use is often very hard to define and it is often considered by many of the more moderate elements in society as a question of degree. Clearly as the natural resources are depleted the need for balance and sustainability is of increasing importance if we are not to deny future generations. World Governments have had to increasingly accept the need for conservation principles often espoused by conservationists and derided by those administrations driven by development and financial considerations.
