Which of these programmes is used to conserve a species from extinction?

A

Captive breeding

B

Natural resources

C

Sustainable use

D

Edge effect

Answer

Captive breeding is the process of maintaining plants or animals in controlled environments, such as wildlife reserves, zoos, botanic gardens, and other conservation facilities. It is sometimes employed to help species that are being threatened by human activities. The activities which pose threat include habitat loss, fragmentation, over-hunting or fishing, pollution, predation, disease, and parasitism. The objective of many captive populations is to hold similar levels of genetic diversity to what is found in wild populations.
So, the correct answer is 'Captive breeding'.
