"  Conservation

No single organism can survive in a biological vacuum. Like any other species, humans are part of a complex web of organisms which provide us with all our essential needs such as food or clean water. As such, preservation of a functional environment providing for all our basic needs is a straightforward extension of the most basic public health policy. The case for maintaining a diverse, not simply functional environment flows from the acceptance that humans are just one, arguably influential, of the many species involved in this wider web. The many ecosystems, be they man-made or pristine are part of our history and deserve as much, if not more of our respect and attention as the Parthenon or Stonehenge.
