Ecosystem Restoration PPT: What, Why and Examples
What is Ecosystem Restoration?
The process of restoring the destruction of ecosystems, such as landscapes, rivers, and seas, to regain their ecological usefulness, or we can say that to enhance the yield we got and capacity of ecosystems to satisfy the demands of society,” is known as ecosystem restoration. This is accomplished by enabling the afforestation or natural regrowth of overexploited ecosystems”
Why Ecosystem Restoration?
- Healthy soils are essential for the survival of life on Earth: Healthy soils are essential to our food systems. Plants, crops, and forests all rely on the restoration of damaged soils. This is contingent on the restoration of intricate connections between the soil, plants, and a wide range of microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses.
- The importance of indigenous culture to the community and society cannot be overstated. Ecological erosion, on the other hand, has the capacity to erode culture, including knowledge and language. This information, which has evolved over thousands of years and is critical for the health of many ecosystems and the livelihoods of communities all over the world, is often hyper-localized.
Examples of Ecosystem Restoration:
- The Wildlife Protection Act of 1972 created conservation parks and other wildlife reserves across India, as well as prohibiting the hunting of endangered native wildlife.
- Amazonian Peruvian Over the last century, land degradation and deforestation have wreaked havoc on Peru’s Amazon. According to Initiative 20×20, land in Peru’s Ucayali region had been largely abandoned in the 1990s until 2008, when the Peruvian company Bosques Amazonicos SAC began training farmers in the area on how to grow food sustainably. It built a paradigm for long-term restoration in the process, resulting in hundreds of new jobs and hundreds of hectares of regenerated forest.
- Other examples are invasive species control; fish passage in the streams and rivers; Wetland, saltmarsh, and eelgrass bed restoration, etc.
