Conservationist Aldo Leopold was a leading advocate for the preservation of ecosystems. In his “The Land Ethic,” Leopold presented his view, “A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.” Current challenges to ecosystem stability and the resulting decline of biodiversity include habitat destruction, invasive species, pollution, population, and overexploitation. These challenges have resulted in the decline of biodiversity worldwide.
Preserving global biodiversity is a priority in strategic conservation plans that are designed to engage public policy and concerns affecting local, regional and global scales of communities, ecosystems and cultures.
