Biodiversity Conservation in Canada:
From Theory to Practice

Fig. 12.3. Conservation initiatives with a broad scope tend to be complex and politicized, making it difficult to achieve desired conservation outcomes. However, such initiatives affect many species across large areas, so even small gains are important. Conservation initiatives with a narrow scope are more likely to achieve their objectives; however, their impact on overall biodiversity may be small.
