Salt marshes are one of the most threatened ecosystems today threats include: • Land reclamation – people believe they are a waste of space so are drained • Industrial pollution- located in estuaries where trash is dumped.• Many UK salt marshes have been reclaimed for farm land, but those that remain provide valuable habitats where salt-tolerant plants grow and birds nest.Coral can be easily stressed by increased human activity, if continued for long periods coral begins to die.Mangroves are vital for the habitats of wildlife as they provide vital nurseries for young sea creatures such as fish and crustaceans.• Salt marshes are found along low lying coastlines where boggy ground is flooded by sea water either daily or less frequently.

Though reclamation can provide for the requirements of the economic development, the conventional reclamation method causes water pollution, air pollution and adversely affects the marine ecosystem, which is not an ideal act for the society.As the dredging process in reclamation is the fundamental cause for the environmental impacts mentioned above, the non-dredged reclamation method is advocated for the future reclamation projects.Due to the limited land supply, reclamation is commonly used to tackle the problem in Hong Kong.According to Chan (2000), dredging and disposal of waste involved in reclamation will bring adverse effects to the marine ecosystem.In order to strike a balance between economic growth and environmental conservation...

This is because the increase in popularity has increased the demand of land to build houses.The waste products that were made while processing forest products would be dumped into the river; thus, polluting it.Besides that, the demand for land gradually increases as time goes by.Land reclamation involves the creation of new lands from oceans or riverbeds.Besides cutting down trees for more land, land reclamation can be taken to acquire more land.

Also known as water reclamation, water recycling is the process of extracting previously used water and treating it for reuse.By reusing water, the overall amount of discharged water waste is decreased.Therefore, by lowering human demand for natural water, fewer ecosystems are destroyed.Reclaimed water is cleaned and redistributed for land irrigation, to recharge ground water, for industrial applications (cooling the water for power plants and oil refineries), for toilet water, to irrigate golf courses and to create artificial snow.It does not directly re-enter the water streams, but instead is treated and then redistributed straight back into the pipes to be reused.

Fishes like the milkfish are abundant beyond the open sea and mariculture covers 70 km of the coastlines.On the other hand, the major polluter of Papua New Guinea estuaries are mud brought in from land erosion, aggravated by poor land management and intense rainfall.To address the problem, the government of the Philippines had created agencies that protects the sea and its marine resources.Water pollution primarily are caused by the dumping of chemical waste on the river by industries while human abuse takes the form of overfishing and improper fishing where smaller fishes are caught along with the big ones.Moreover, locals and tourist also destroyed marine life by taking coral souvenirs from the sea, capture or kill many endangered ma...

Besides cutting down trees for more land, land reclamation can become one of the ways to have more land.Instead of cutting down the trees to have new land, we can do land reclamation.Land reclamation is creating new lands from oceans or riverbeds.This is because the increase in popularity has increased the demand of land to build houses.As I stated earlier, the causes of deforestation are large sum of foreign debt, increasing demand of land, and the weakness shown in the government’s policies.

Much of the waste produced by the United States is sent overseas.As China decides in 2018 to stop imports of plastic waste so as not to be the “garbage of the world”, the recycling industry in the United States is upset.The price of waste treatment is increasing dramatically and many cities prefer to incinerate their waste, affecting air quality, or to open landfills, a major source of methane emissions.It lays the foundations for the system of national parks, national monuments and national forests as well as nature reserves by bringing land under federal control.A new federal agency, the Reclamation Service, is created and collaborates with scientists.

At a recent Salton Sea symposium many ideas were presented on how to mange the Sea however no action had been taken.Currently the proposed Salton Sea Species Conservation Habitat (SCH) Project size once totally build-out is expected to be approximately 2,400 acres, however, construction time and costs are dependant on the acquisition of land (Salton Sea Update, September 2010).Below is a map of the partial sea plan from the Salton Sea Authority.The Salton Sea also represents an ethical dilemma, is restoring the Sea the best use of public funds?In December of 2007 the US Bureau of Reclamation issued the Restoration of the salton sea final report December 2007 in which the costs for the different plans was laid out.

Municipal solid waste landfills (MFWLFs) receive household waste.* Operating practices – include compacting and covering waste frequently with several inches of soil help reduce odor; control litter, insects, and rodents; and protect public health.Industrialized nations can generate pounds of solid waste per consumer thus making it a big problem for the world’s undying waste destitution.* Groundwater monitoring requirements – requires testing groundwater wells to determine whether waste materials have escaped from the landfill.Since human cities began to be more rigorous, solid waste management became a serious matter and for a reason, some industrialized nations today, solid waste management is a multimillion dollar business.

Land conversion, meaning the alteration or modification of the original properties of the land to make it use-worthy for a specific purpose is another major cause.Anthropogenic activities are conducted citing development, and the same affects the land drastically, we witness land pollution; by drastic we are referring to any activity that lessens the quality and/or productivity of the land as an ideal place for agriculture, forestation, construction etc.Unused available land over the years turns barren; this land then cannot be used.This leads to further deterioration of land, and pollution caused by the land fill contents.Also there is a constant waste of land.

The current network of dykes, dunes and dams used to maintain dry land in Netherlands is adequate for the control of low risk flooding.Holland is popular for its reclamation of about 7000 square kilometers of land from the sea.Calculations show that an increase in sea level by over 0.5 meters significantly increases the risk of flooding (Mols, 2005).In addition, the population increase has continued to exert pressure on available land for settlement, which has made the need for new land more urgent than before (Anderson, 2000).The construction of the floating structures takes place on dry land before being moved and installed on the man-made islands (Projectbureau IJburg, 2012).
