The conservation movement, also known as nature conservation, is a political, environmental, and social movement that seeks to manage and protect natural resources, including animal, fungus, and plant species as well as their habitat for the future.[1]

While most people supports protection of wildlife and sensitive nature areas, it is noticeable that many billionaires are highly passionate about the subject. The deep politics aspect of it comes in with their plans for very extensive conservation areas - essentially without people - and the methods they are willing to use to achieve that goal.

History

The early conservation movement evolved out of necessity to maintain natural resources such as fisheries, wildlife management, water, soil, as well as conservation and sustainable forestry. The contemporary conservation movement has broadened from the early movement's emphasis on use of sustainable yield of natural resources and preservation of wilderness areas to include preservation of biodiversity. Some say the conservation movement is part of the broader and more far-reaching environmental movement, while others argue that they differ both in ideology and practice.

Rewilding

Rewilding activities are conservation efforts aimed at expanding wilderness areas. The United Nations have listed re-wilding as one of several methods needed to achieve massive scale restoration of natural ecosystems, which they say must be accomplished by 2030.

The US/Swiss billionaire Hansjörg Wyss, through his Wyss Foundation, aims to help conserve 30 per cent of the Earth in a natural state by 2030 and believes this is ‘achievable’ because he’s seen what can be accomplished.[2]

The organization Nature Needs Half wants 50% the earth to be conservation zones by 2030.[3]
