Ex-situ conservations: Off-site preservation
Ex situ conservation means the protection of endangered species of plants or animals outside their natural environment. This is done by removing part of the plant or animal group from a threatened habitat and placing it in a new location. The new site may be wild or under human care, as is the case with botanical gardens. Ex situ conservation includes laboratory methods to ensure the survival of the species.
