preserving something or keeping it unimpaired
The presence of carp in nearly all of our rivers, streams, and reservoirs is a constant reminder that our environment is a complex relationship among all habitats and organisms. The introduction of any non-native organism may have tremendous impacts on these habitats. It is seldom possible to eradicate an organism once it gets established. We must support our management agencies in maintaining strict and well enforced regulations regarding the introduction of exotic organisms to any of our habitats. Only after exhaustive research and evaluation should these introductions be allowed. Carp have compromised the conservation of most of our clear water aquatic plants and animals, with little benefit in return. Glossary

refers to the long-term maintenance of ecosystem biodiversity through the management of multiple forms of resource use and preservation.

Conceptualized in this manner, conservation encompasses a broad and complex range of social and ecological interactions and negotiations.
One of the major Western political ideologies, at the core of conservatism is the commitment to sustain traditional values and forms of behavior and to maintain social order. Tradition and religion, rather than reason, are viewed as the most reliable sources for guiding society. There is loyalty to the nation and antipathy to egalitarianism. The writings of Edmund Burke (1790) provide a good example of conservative thought.
