Conservation is about protecting natural habitats; therefore, conserving natural vegetation will require protection of the area where vegetation is growing. It's wise to remember that all threats to natural vegetation are not human or man-made - sometimes, other animals and pests can feast on vegetation, reducing it to a veritable "Swiss cheese' of holes. Therefore, gentle, environmentally-friendly pesticides and insecticides may be needed to control infestations and deter animals from munching on natural vegetation. Sometimes, cordoning off an area and making it more difficult for people to access can also be an effective way to protect and conserve an area.

  • Other threats

Weather can wreak havoc on natural vegetation, so covering plant life with tarps or other protection may be necessary before severe storms or rainfalls. Ice and frost also kill plants, so thermal solutions may be needed - consider a greenhouse, where cuttings of natural vegetation can be planted and tended to. A greenhouse is a controlled environment that tends to provide plant life with more than adequate heat and light. If you're taking cuttings, remember to study the plants you will be caring for - after all, if you can't keep them alive, you've defeated the purpose, which is to conserve natural vegetation.

  • Read and learn

Botanists and biologists spend years learning about living organisms, such as natural vegetation; benefit from their education and experience by seeking out reports and theses written on the subject of conserving natural vegetation. Environmental groups online may also have informative websites that feature great tips on caring for and conserving plants and vegetation in your area.

How you care for plants and vegetation depends on the species you are dealing with, so learn about what vegetation you have growing, and find out how much water, light and heat it needs. Then, you'll be ready to protect your lush, beautiful natural vegetation.
