Its means different means to different people. To many, its means the protection of wild nature or to others, it is the protection of the forest, soil or natural resources (including minerals, fossil, fuel, fisheries, wild animals, birds, plants etc). The Natural Resources interprets conservation as "the achievement of the highest sustainable quality of living for mankind by the natural utilization of the environment".

Parasites, fruiting plants, flowers, rhino, elephant, fishes, birds, insects and so on are among the life forms that have a natural home at the park. Certain species of trees, shrubs and wild trees and animals are being added to the wealth of the forest. The greatest loss caused by development has been the extinction of many species of plants, animals, birds, inserts and topsoil. In the process of development we scarify our natural resources and in turn create pollution and degradation of environment.

Conservation does not mean keeping the minerals, the forest, fish, animal and fauna in the jungle completely untouched. If its mean that, its mean unpractical. Let create it something for your eyes to see, your ears to hear, nose to smell, mouth to taste and lets our mind to think about what God has created to us. Human being must harvest from what God give to us to survive ourselves. Contain!!! We need not be wasteful and destructive. For example, while fishing try to practice right method or for cutting trees / timber, do not bulldoze 20-30 other small trees and at last it will expose the soil to erosion and pollute the river or lake.

During the construction of the dam in 1983, happened the most challenging event i.e. the filling of the main dam. During that time the heavy rainfall in the monsoon season caused the dam water level to increase. This threatened the life of wild animals in the surrounding Kenyir area. Fortunately the government had acted aggressively to save that wild life. Actually those creatures did not have sufficient time to retreat to higher ground. A herd of wild elephants, which was stranded on the one of the tiny island, was rescued by a group of Perhilitan team. Those elephants had been transferred to their mother nature habitat at Taman Negara Park where they lived there peacefully ever after. Let’s we think about its (conservation). Its means thought and care for all resources whether they be plant, animals or soil. The attitude and behavior for much way conservation is human greed for their quick profits. To ensure our children can enjoy nature we must learn to conserve in the broadest sense of word.
