Brassratgirl: I am impressed with your expansions to this article. I think that it is developing nicely. Why do you characterise Marine conservation as a science? I see it more as an application of science (like, say, agriculture). —Theo (Talk) 10:26, 26 August 2005 (UTC)

  • Thanks! As far as science or no, it's true that 'a new branch of science' is probably not accurate, but I don't think marine conservation is solely an applied science.. like conservation biology, it's both applied and theoretical (academic). I will change this to read 'discipline' until I figure out how to make it clearer. Thanks for your help! Brassratgirl 00:27, 10 September 2005 (UTC)

Title change[edit]

Someone has changed the title of this article, without seeking consensus, from "Marine conservation" to "Marine resources conservation". I have reverted this. It is a somewhat awkward and unnecessary change. As can be seen in the following Google hit table, the original term is much more commonly preferred by academics.

Search term Google scholar Google books
"Marine conservation" 34,300 122,000
"Marine resources conservation" 928 8,620

Google isn't an encyclopedia, it seems to me that the change of title I perform is closer to the subject of this article. Bear-rings (talk) 17:09, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
