What’s a sustainable conservation strategy?
What are the sustainability goals of a sustainable management strategy?
This section discusses the types of goals and the ways in which these goals can be met.
It also explains how the sustainability objectives are set.
Sustainable conservation goals A sustainable conservation goal (SCG) is an overarching strategy for conserving biodiversity and other ecological values.
The SCG is an ambitious and achievable goal that is based on the conservation needs of the species or ecosystem it protects.
SCGs are often described as conservation objectives, as the goals can range from the simple to the complex, depending on the species, the environment and the goals.
The aim of the conservation strategy is to achieve conservation success through a wide variety of conservation actions.
The conservation goals can include, but are not limited to: preserving the ecosystem for the benefit of all species in the ecosystem; protecting the biodiversity of a species for its own sake; and promoting the recovery of a threatened species.
A sustainable SCG will have many conservation goals, which may include, for example: preserving and conserving an ecosystem for its full potential, as well as managing a species to achieve its full value.
A SCG can also include an approach to conservation management which focuses on a specific species, ecosystem or habitat, or the protection of other species and ecosystems.
A conservation SCG, in general, aims to protect an ecosystem, ecosystem, or habitat to the greatest extent possible.
To achieve this, conservation goals may be set in a variety of ways, such as through management planning, by creating conservation measures, by setting targets, or by implementing management strategies.
To illustrate the concept of a SCG in more detail, a SCGs conservation objective can be seen in Figure 1.1.1 (Figure 1.2 in the publication will be available in April 2018).
A SCGs environmental objective is defined by the conservation objectives set by the SCGs goals.
For example, a conservation SCGs objective is “To conserve biodiversity, including but not limited, to the full range of species in a species, as determined by its ecological value”.
The SCGs ecological value can be defined as “the extent to which the ecosystem serves the conservation purposes of the community, as reflected by the quality of its ecosystem services, biodiversity, and other characteristics”.
A conservation goal is an environmental goal that aims to achieve the conservation value of the ecosystem.
Conservation objectives can be achieved through various methods, such through management, conservation or the application of management strategies, as outlined below.
A range of conservation objectives A SCGC can include an environmental objective as well, such that the goal of the SCGC is to protect the ecosystem in general for the preservation of the ecological value of that ecosystem, such for example, as through protecting its habitat.
The value of an ecosystem can be measured by measuring its environmental or other characteristics.
The ecological value depends on the characteristics of the environment (for example, the size of the habitat or the density of organisms).
For example: the quality and diversity of an ecological niche (for instance, the number of species inhabiting a particular ecosystem) can also be measured.
To measure the ecological quality of an environment, the ecological values of different species or habitats can be compared using ecological data sets.
A more detailed description of how the conservation of biodiversity and its conservation benefits are measured can be found in the article Conservation and ecosystem value (ECV) assessment (PDF, 3.9 MB).
The conservation objectives for a species are usually described in terms of conservation values (CV), such as for example as in the definition of the ecocidal value of a plant species in Chapter 7.1 of the Conservation of Biodiversity and the Conservation and Ecology of a Species Guide (CASEG) (PDF) or the definition in Chapter 3 of the Appendix to the Species Conservation Guidelines (CASG).
An SCG’s ecological value may be defined by a set of conservation measures which are based on a species’ value to the ecosystem, as illustrated in Figure 2.1, which illustrates the conservation values of a number of wild plants and animals in the wild, such a the red cedar.

The red sage is the most widely distributed species of wild cactus in North America.
It is the only plant species that grows in the southern hemisphere and has been identified in more than 10,000 sites.
Red cactus is one of the most common species of cactus.
The species is also the most endangered wild cacti in the world.
The cactus species can be identified by its red and yellow flowers.
The Red sage is also one of a few species of Western American wild sage, a member of the family Serratus, that can grow in the American Southwest.
A red sage can be distinguished from a blue sage by its purple flowers.
Red sage, which is also known as the cactus with purple flowers, is native to the Great Basin of the U
