Resource summary

1 In situ (natural environment)
1.1 Protected area such as national parks and nature reserves
1.2 Protecting habitats, restoring damaged areas
1.3 PROS: The species and habitat are conserved, a large number can be protected and less disruptive.
1.4 CONS: Difficult to control predators like poachers and climate change
2 Ex situ (outside natural environment)
2.1 Relocating species to a new area
2.2 Breeding them in captivity then reintroducing them to the wild
2.3 Botanic garden and seed banks
2.4 PROS: Control over predators in a controlled environment.
2.5 CONS: Only a small number can be protected, it's expensive and difficult. Species cannot breed successfully or don't adapt

3.2.3 Make it illegal to kill endangered species
3.2.4 Make it illegal to trade in products made from endangered species
3.2.5 Educate and raise awareness
4 Environmental Impact Assessment
4.1 Estimates biodiversity on the project site and evaluate how the development may affect biodiversity
