From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A conservation management system (CMS) is a procedure for maintaining a species or habitat in a particular state. It is a means whereby humankind secures wildlife in a favourable condition for contemplation, education or research, in perpetuity. It is an important topic in cultural ecology, where conservation management counterbalances the unchecked exploitative management of natural resources. Conservation management systems are vital for turning sustainable development strategies into successful operations.

In New Zealand the Department of Conservation develops conservation management strategies in conjunction with the community as a means of prioritising conservation issues.[1]
