The observations and knowledge acquired can be divided into three parts which are wildlife, farming and water conservation.Besides acquiring knowledge, I realized that we should pay more attention in using the natural resources and we should put more effort on the conservation.The water drains naturally from the top to the bottom of the spiral due to the gravity.This system uses a wide range of wetland plants to act as biological filters for wastewater treatment, inspired by the water purification function of natural wetlands.To sum up, the field trip helps experience how to implement the conservation of natural resources, for example, the rescue of wildlife, the constructed wetland wastewater treatment system and different methods of fa...

Farmers should reduce their dependence on ground water.Wars will emerge and will perhaps lead to the third World War which will be fought for water and food.In the survey titled “Climate Change, Water and Food Security”, climate change will reduce the amount of water in river run-offs and aquifer rechargers in the Mediterranean and semi-arid areas of the Americas, Australia and Southern Africa.There is an unquestionable need for us to save water and stop lavishly frivolling away with food.This will make them realise the threat and motivate them to take steps in conserving water and food.

Water saving devices like flow regulators, water flow sensors, and low flush toilets are just some of the things we can put in our comfort rooms and kitchens to make sure that wasting water is at a minimal, and if observed thoroughly, no wastage at all.Installing water meters in every department (if possible) for example, is a good way to monitor the establishment’s water consumption, by doing so we can determine the monthly water consumption and cost of our workplace, if we are aware of this we’ll know what department consumes too much water and necessary action will be taken immediately.This assessment is important in order for us to find out the resource allocation for the said project and determine the costs associated with environme...

The elimination of these plants is the direct cause for the other fish which depend on the aquatic vegetation as part of the cycle of life to vanish from our water ways.What I propose are a couple of options that I strongly believe will help rid our water ways with the over populated “grass carp” and to keep our environment well balanced.During the peak of “Grass Carp” regenerating period, we can position a extended seine netting that with go completely over all the crossways of the openings of the three water ways to put a stop to the “Grass Carp” from getting into the water ways.Option 1- To reintroduce the water way natural fish back into the lakes and pond; next promote a campaign asking for farmers to reduce the current amount of fe...

Humans can replace fishes and other aquatic life forms in the lake so they would not become extinct.Humans can ban dynamite fishing which is not only dangerous to the lake but to humans themselves.In conclusion, recovery of the lake ecosystem should be facilitated not only naturally but through the intervention of humans to make restoration more abrupt and systematic.After all, humans benefit much from the lake ecosystem just as the living creatures which depend on it.Usually lakes are surrounded by forests and some forms have watersheds near them where water is collected and could serve as nourishment for living things.
