Abstract

As aptly mentioned by Kenchignton (1988) conservation implies concepts of preservation and sustainable use of the resources. The aim of both aesthetic conservation and extractive conservation strategies is both judicious exploitation and guarantee of a sustainable yield. An aesthetic approach in nature and natural resources management advocates preservation to ensure ecological balance ecotourism and scientific research. Extractive conservation is a contemporary expression to denote resource harvest or resource development to promote utilization. Conservation can also be biocentric aesthetic or anthropocentric aesthetic typeis. The former underscores the primacy of resource preservation for safeguarding ecological and genetic diversity, while the latter aims at habitat protection for human recreation, traditional subsistence and perhaps for scientific research.
