Area-based Conservation

Area-based conservation of biodiversity refers to the strategy of protecting species by protecting and managing the places where they live, including by accruing additional benefits by connecting places via corridors. The conservation and management of specific geographical areas, includes  protected areas such as, national parks, wilderness areas, biodiversity reserves and community conserved areas, for the express purpose of preserving and restoring  biodiversity, habitats and ecosystems. It involves the establishment of legal and management frameworks to protect habitats, species, and ecological processes within designated areas. Area-based conservation measures are essential for maintaining ecological integrity and supporting the sustainable use of natural resources.
