As a result of this protection, the black market demand for some creatures and plants found therein has risen dramatically; it is a constant battle for the staff of these vast expanses to keep poachers and criminals from further endangering these species. A Wildlife Preserve not only serves to protect the environment, but provides a chance for visitors to appreciate the denizens and contribute to the maintenance of the preserve. Not only are creatures an attraction, but also plant-life, some of which is rare and beautiful.
Wildlife Preserves are found in every corner of the galaxy; even the city-planet Coruscant once held an Endangered Shreebird Aviary. The refuge they provide to ecosystems and natural habitats, in an observable setting, ensures that future generations will have the opportunity to experience and appreciate the natural world. Wildlife Preserves will remain a necessity as long as civilization continues to expand and poachers continue to prey upon endangered wildlife.
