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.The water drains naturally from the top to the bottom of the spiral due to the gravity.The observations and knowledge acquired can be divided into three parts which are wildlife, farming and water conservation.First of all, for wildlife, helping protect our local and regional biodiversity are the main goals of KFBG in fauna conservation aspect.The field trip enables us to experience how to implement the conservation of natural resources, such as water and farming and helps explain what we have learnt in class.
