For Marine Conservation, one specialized area of wildlife conservation is "marine conservation. " As a marine conservationist, you will be involved in such activities as diving and conducting research on coral reefs. Coastal erosion is an important issue facing the residents and marine life of coastal areas. As coastal and ocean resources are depleted, this research is taking on a new urgency. For education, an important part of a wildlife conservationist's job is educating the public. This involves teaching people better ways of caring for their environment and the wildlife living there. Raising public awareness and raising funds for research is one of the best ways to ensure that lands and endangered species are protected. As for the job outlook, the The Job Bank USA reports growth for conservation scientists and foresters will be stronger in scientific research and private sector consulting firms through 2012. As a stronger emphasis is placed upon environmental protection, these job opportunities will continue to increase. Hiring of conservationists to prepare environmental impact studies on erosion control and tree harvesting will continue through the year 2012. The salary, As reported by the Job Bank USA, the median salary of conservationists in 2002 was $50,340.

Futur Habitat Loss and the Conservation of Plant Biodiversity

Other problems or threats to GCN species are crop production practices, excessive groundwater withdrawal, fire suppression, management of or for certain species, channel alteration, exotic species, parasites, pathogens, recreation, grazing, predation, forestry activities and resource extraction. The Louisiana Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy has addressed these problems or threats to the GCN species population with conservation actions. These actions include decreasing the data gap by gathering more information on GCN species, by fire management with controlled burned, with habitat protection by initiating projects to protect existing habitat or habitat components, with habitat restoration and improvement by initiating projects to restore or enhance existing habitats, with land acquisition by purchasing land or conservation easement that is important to GCN species, with population management by directly manipulating GCN species population by restocking, translocation an harvest management, with public relations and education by increasing public awareness of GCN species and key habitats through education and public outreach, with threat abatement by mitigating existing threats including pollution, predation an competing species and with other conservation action plans that have not been covered previously. Monitoring the CWCS in Louisiana will begin with the employment of existing inventories and surveys, which includes any monitoring done by conservation partners. Monitoring will continue with surveys, remote sensing, satellite imagery, disease and movement monitoring, breeding site survey sampling, DNA and net sampling, herpetological web site, predictive modeling, ground truthing and taxonomic affinities an reclassification. Population, habitat and project-level monitoring are also included in the Louisiana CWCS as well as distribution information, length frequency distributions; community-level monitoring and replication. These performance measures provide information that pertains to conservation actions and provide for revisions to these actions if needed. The conservation action and proposed plans for GCN species and habitat monitoring occurs with help from several partners. These partners include but are not limited to Louisiana State University, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, United States Geological Survey, Smurfit-Stone, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Louisiana Audubon Council, Louisiana Department of Natural Resources, University of Louisiana, Tulane University, Barataria-Terrebonne National Estuary Program, United Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Park Service. The Louisiana Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy is scheduled for reviews and revision in 5-year intervals. The purpose of this is for this reviewing the conservation status of the GCN species and to revise the list if necessary, to determine if modification is necessary.
