conservation

  

Definition

Exploitation, improvement, and protection of human and natural resources in a wise manner, ensuring derivation of their highest economic and social benefits on a continuing or long-term basis. Conservation is achieved through alternative technologies, recycling, and reduction in waste and spoilage, and (unlike preservation) implies consumption of the conserved resources.
