There are so many 'tools' used for conserving the earth that I couldn't even begin to give you a proper list, but here's just a couple of examples...

(1) Recycling is one way that we can prevent our wastes from going into the environment, helping to protect the earth.

(2) A group of people called 'wildlife rehabilitationists' work to take care of wild animals that have been hurt by human expansion.

(3) In politics, groups of people can do something called 'lobbying' to convince politicians to pass laws that are intended to help conserve the earth.

I think that even from just these examples you can see that the 'tools' used for the conservation of the earth are so varied and come in so many forms that it's hard to even imagine them all. In the end, all these tools are really just the product of something called 'human ingenuity', which I would say is the ultimate tool for just about anything.
