CONSERVATION AND PRESERVATION 1. After reading section 3.1, define the terms “preservation” and “conservation” as they are used in the context of environmental science. According to Hlebowitsch (2005), conservation is the sensible and careful management of natural resources and preservation is concerned with setting aside undisturbed areas, maintaining them in a pristine state, and protecting them from human activities that might alter their “natural” state. My understanding of these definitions are instead of us continuously neglecting our environment with what we think is a necessity we should think of our environment and ways to leave it so that future generations can also enjoy what we had a chance to. 2.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
