Keys Ways in which you can Realize Recovery of Wetlands and Mounding
Most animals of the wild like having and enjoying their life in natural habitats, which are created by wetlands. There is no doubt that lives of many animals in the wild are supported by lands of dense vegetative cover, together with water flood. There are high risks of losing the beneficial effects which come from wildlife in their natural environment, once the habits are degraded. More and more waterfowls are migrating and some are dying due to the degradation of their natural ecology. Mostly it is due to drought and activities of man. For that reason, there is need for a deliberate effort to conserve and restore the important ecosystem.
There are key ways in which the dream can be realized.
One of the key ways of conserving wetlands is by encouraging reclamation and conservation of grass covered lands. This is so because, vegetative cover found in grasslands provide an ample ground for several species of birds to live. In grass land, most animals find security, besides the fact that some find their food in such environments. After hatching, the hen together with its chicks migrate to the nearby wetland for further security and better life away from dangerous animals. The need for conservation of degrade wetlands cannot be overemphasized owing to the roles they play in natural ecosystem.
Degraded forest lands can be taken back to their natural conditions in an effort to maintain the wet land conditions and dense tree cover, which are environments suitable for majority of wildlife. Water flooding from water bodies such as rivers and lakes to forests, has greatly supported the lives of many wildlife including the waterfowls. Majority of the animals have found the flooded grounds to be most suitable for breeding and feeding. The life of the wildlife is greatly affected through a complex web of activities. Reforestation has proven a dependable way of reclaiming the wetlands.
Wetlands can be successfully protected and restored by restoring the surrounding environments also. The surrounding areas of the wetlands play a crucial role when it comes to maintenance of a healthy and suitable living environment of wildlife of the wetlands. The life of the wildlife is put in a great danger if the ecosystem is altered as a result of contamination of the catchment areas. Therefore there is need to prevent degradation of watershed by protecting stream corridors and building buffer strips to prevent silting.
Lastly is by land acquisition and improvement. The land is to be transformed into conditions which favor survival of wildlife.
Challenges of wetland conservation can easily be counteracted in order to boost the life of animals in their natural habitats.
