Webster's New Riverside University Dictionary:

1.  The act or process of conserving.
2.  Controlled use and systematic protection of natural resources, as
forests and waterways.

An advocate of conservation of natural resources.


The USDA permits act as a control device to prevent release of
non-indigenous species in any state.  Even if you want to stretch it
(butterflies are not forests or waterways) then butterflies as a natural
resource, are being protected and their usage controlled by USDA permits.
I advocate protection and control of these "natural resources" through the
use of agency permits for shipping.  

Therefore, I am a conservationist.  
I am also a butterfly breeder.
