What is environmental conservation and why is it important?

Environmental conservation is the practice of preserving the natural world to prevent it from collapsing as a result of human activities, such as unsustainable agriculture, deforestation, and burning fossil fuels. Side effects of these practices include toxic air, plastic pollution, destruction of natural habitats, and most urgently, climate change. If we don’t act soon, this will lead to an even further increase in natural disasters, rising sea levels, and extreme weather, resulting in collapsed ecosystems, mass extinction of wildlife, food scarcity, and global displacement of people.
