Environmental protection and preservation are terms usually confused as they are generally substituted for each other. There is a clear distinction between them, which will be discussed in the following paragraphs.
Environment preservation focuses on maintaining the present areas of nature that are untouched by human beings. In other words, it places emphasis on protecting the wild landscape from the negative effects of over-development, valuing nature. Nature is an utmost important factor for the creation of a healthy and prosperous atmosphere to live in.
On the other hand, environment conservation implies the sustainable use of natural, renewable and non-renewable resources. It focuses on the needs and interests of human beings in areas such as the biological, economic, cultural and recreational. In this case, development is necessary for the creation of a better future while taking into consideration that these resources are managed effectively and efficiently.
In general, both terms address the need of becoming more environmentally friendly in order to make the planet more sustainable for future generations. For Natural Habitats, sustainability is a combination of organic and fair trade, which is achieved by ensuring fair and equal opportunities to all the farmers while working in harmony with the environment.

This is a learning process that increases the community knowledge and awareness about the environment and its associated challenges.
