In today’s society, we have been more aware of the damages that we have inflicted towards our home planet. Ecological restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that has been degraded, damaged, or destroyed. The progress of human civilization has greatly damaged the environment, including ecosystems and species. In fact, we are the cause of several extinctions of some species. We are also the reason for global warming, which causes climate change. Drastically affecting the natural balance of life on our planet. Due to these effects, we have become more aware of what our actions could do to the environment.
Scientists and Environmentalists are people who study how to restore ecosystems and renew natural habitats in the environment. They also support biodiversity which is the key to restore the natural balance of life. One can help with ecological restoration by supporting their cause. Indeed, simple things can be done to make an impact on our environment. Preventing further damage to it.
Ecosystems and natural habitats such as forests, jungles, lakes, seas, and mountains industrialized due to the growth of civilization. Which also leads to unsustaining and destroying the ecology of these environments. Biodiversity renewal is the study that supports the act of ecological restoration. It is the practice of restoring damaged or destroyed ecosystems. To renew biodiversity is to assist in the process of restoring the ecological and the natural balance of life. It also acts as conservation to strains of plants and animal species. Making it a pro-life cause that supports the lives of endangered species of animals.
Impact of Ecological Restoration
Due to the actions of humans, industrialization, the rise of cities and civilizations have severely damaged our natural resources. These damages are directly affecting our environment and ecosystems. Even more, destroying our sources of clean air and drinkable water.
Recovering the ecosystems provide healthy waterways, support biodiversity, and reverse environmental degradation. Furthermore, restoring ecosystems have a big impact on our society, supporting biodiversity, recovering our natural resources and supply of clean air and water. It is of great importance for us and future generations to survive on our planet.
How To Be A Help As A Citizen
People have been more susceptible to learn how to take care of the environment. We have been aware of how we have damaged our ecosystems and environment. We are now active regarding environmental issues. Citizens want their environment to be clean, thus they are acting towards a better environment.
Here are some examples of how to help:
- Monitoring ponds and rivers – Waterways are important to humans, animals and plants alike. Keeping waterways clean is a great way to improve biodiversity.
- Recycling – Humans have excess material everywhere and these materials should be cleaned and recycled for better use.
- Segregation – Segregation of trash and waste is important to reduce pollution and waste.
- Building Green – Opting to build with natural and organic materials reduce the making of chemicals and hazardous compounds such as asphalt
Restoration Leads To Conservation
Biodiversity has been on a decline since the rise of civilizations and the industrialization of our cities. We have been depleting our natural resources and destroy natural habitats for other animals and organisms.
Some extinction of species and strains of plants caused by us humans. There are some organizations that want to conserve and preserve remaining species and strains of animals and plants. Restoring ecosystems and natural habitats will support biodiversity thus supporting conservation and preservation of said species and strains.
Our planet has greatly suffered the consequences of our actions, these consequences will haunt our future generations if we do not act on it now. The practice of ecological restoration is a huge pavement for us humans to replenish lost and destroyed ecosystems that we have damaged and plundered. We have to take action to help nourish our environment to recover lost ecosystems and support biodiversity. By doing this we can retain our natural resources and supply for clean drinkable waters and breathable air.
However, we can only succeed if everyone is aware that our simple actions can greatly affect the environment. Awareness regarding environmental issues should be taught and spread to people, older and younger generations alike.
