Ayúdenos en preservar...


Explanation:
To make this sound more imperative, I would rephrase "nos ayude" to ayúdenos.

Good luck! Angela

agree  Terry Burgess: Completely..but perhaps the proposition should be "a" instead of "en"...as the imperative.

Explanation:
Jeff,

If the text is asking the people for help, then it will be:
Ayúdenos a preservar or conservar or mantener...
But if something is going to "help us to", then you are right "Nos ayude a (instead of en) preservar..."

Hope it helps!

Explanation:
Is how I have seen this sentence in all cases before. You can either use the word, "conservar" (to preserve)or "mantener" (to keep)

There is a lot to choose from. Luck!
