    (i) To preserve ecological diversity: Conservation of biodiversity is necessary because it preserves the ecological diversity and preserves our life support systems i.e., water air and soil. For example, the plants, animals and micro-organisms recreate the quality of the air we breathe, the water we drink and the soil that produces our food without which we cannot survive.
    (ii) To preserve genetic diversity: It also preserves the genetic diversity of plants and animals for better growth and breeding of species.
