How do you conserve a geodiversity site?

Today's new Earthlearningidea is 'So, you want to conserve a geodiversity site?' 

If you found the most amazing geological site, like one of those shown in the photos, and thought it should be conserved for all to see, for many years to come, what could you do? This is a planning activity focussed on conserving a site of geoscientific importance.
After doing this activity pupils can:
- explain why a geological site is valuable and important;
- describe the different factors that need to be taken into account to preserve a geodiversity site;
- prepare a case to be presented to others arguing for the conservation of a geological site.
Many more teaching ideas about the environment can be found in Teaching strategies on the website.
