What About the Damaged Ecosystems?
This post will go through restoring damaged ecosystems for Prelim Biology.
Topic: Future Ecosystems
- Investigate practices used to restore damaged ecosystems, Country or Place, for example:
- Mining sites
- Land degradation from agricultural practices
Previously, many mining sites, after use, were just not good for anything. Various chemicals are used during the mining process and the mines are typically not dug in well-thought-out structures which makes it unsuitable for farming. Of course, this also means that many animals cannot be rehabilitated to reside on or near the mines either. Although, there are rehabilitation programs now that are seeing some success.
This video goes through the impact of mining on the environment.
This video goes through mine rehabilitation
This video goes through mining practices that are being implemented to reduce damage to ecosystems. Although, the best way to reduce damage is to just not mine.
This video goes through the importance of soil.
This video goes through restoring degraded land.
This is a TED talk on an effective practice to restore degraded lands, highly recommend you watch it.
