Saving species, as in having to evacuate doomed worlds? We didn't any of that aside from "Homeward"
But evacuation isn't the only form of "humanitarian intervention" there is, and we have seen Starfleet step in to save species whose planets were threatened with extinction events.

What if you could only save a species by evacuating and relocating if you force them on another species that lives on the other planet?
The Star Trek universe does seem to have a large number of "nobody lives here" planets. And if need be relocate them to a Federation planet, put them in some kind of reservation/park situation. Being alive and having to deal with neighbors, is better than being dead.

All of a sudden you would influence the development of both cultures, and, highly probably, cause a never ending conflict between both.
Relocating one primative species to the planet of another primative species probably would be something to avoid.
