3. reasons for conservation

3.1. To maintain biodiversity by preventing extinction: 1.maintenance of a large gene pool is important as many wild plants and animals posses favorable genes.By cross breeding we can improve agricultural produce. FOR EX. PLANTS WITH BETTER RESISTANCE TO DISEASES AND DROUGHT CAN BE PRODUCE BY CROSSING DOMESTIC SPECIES WITH WILD SPECIES.2.Many tropical plants are a source of medicinal drugs. FOR EX. QUININE ' AN ANTI-MALARIAL DRUG FROM THE BARK OF CINCHONA .

3.2. For economic purposes: 1. Marine life need to be conserved as they are humans main source of food. 2. Tropical rain forest food and raw materials. EX. RATTAN USED FOR MAKING FURNITURE AND FOOD LIKE BANANA PINEAPPLE

3.3. For scientific research, the study of wildlife provides useful information to humans.FOR EX. WE LEARN ABOUT EVOLUTION FROM STUDYING WILDLIFE

3.4. To maintain a stable and balanced ecosystem: it prevents disruption of natural cycles such a s carbon cycle and also prevent global warming.

3.5. To preserve natural scenery and wildfire for people to appreciate:FOR EX. NATURAL RESOURCES ENABLE OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES SUCH AS FISHING AND CAMPING.
