The Wildlife Preserve is an area of a planet which is specifically protected from expansion and industrialization which, if unchecked, can threaten the health of entire ecosystems. To address this threat, governments and environmental organizations have worked together to set aside and protect areas of land most affected, like ocean reefs, forests, and even deserts. 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. Some preserves even offer animal taming areas to rehabilitate injured or orphaned specimens. In addition to the ability to glimpse rare creatres, the wilderness preserves offer visitors the ability to enjoy rare and beautiful plant life.
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.
