Abstract: Cultural and artistic elements have often been criticized as frozen in time and less useful in conservation issues for biodiversity. The study was carried out to argue substantially that some of the Asante cultural and artistic elements still hold practical worth for the conservation of biodiversity in Ghana. A case and phenomenological studies under the qualitative research design were utilized in ascertaining the conservation worth of Asante cultural and artistic elements from a purposively and randomly sampled respondents of 112. The study revealed that Asante Cultural and Artistic elements have philosophical and scientific values that are compatible with scientific conservation approaches and hold great weight in modern biodiversity conservation initiatives. The study contends that for better results in biodiversity conservation in Ghana, conservationists must be helped to appreciate and utilize the cultural and artistic elements pertinent to biodiversity conservation as viable complements to the scientific conservation approaches.
