Restoring Damaged Ecosystems

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

 

Mining

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.
