Landscape conservation can be conducted with different methods and approaches that depend on the concepts and perspectives adopted (Lee et al. 2010; Wang and Ho 1999; Wang and Lee 2002). For instance, the level of technological and societal understanding determines how landscape conservation is implemented. Most commonly, landscape conservation is understood as a way to protect the landscape from inappropriate or unfit changes. However, it also concentrates on maintaining sustainable ways of human life.
