ABSTRACT
Nature conservation has become a necessity recognized by most of the states and ratified in various treaties and conventions. Nature protection is a necessity for a growing humanity, both in terms of numbers and multiple needs (food, raw materials, energy, etc.), necessity which translates itself into conservation of natural resources. This is not about preservation but also to rationally manage a heritage rich in current and future possibilities, where man is just a passerby, but clever enough to destroy nature.
