(The Wetland Conservancy, 2008) So, what is the importance of maintaining these ecosystems?(The Wetland Conservancy, 2008) When it comes to how we go about protecting an ecosystem such as a wetland there is preservation, conservation and natural regulation.Since the preservation site is unchanged by man, the wetland is able to regenerate and degrade on its own, meaning that the wetland will go through various stages of nature without mankind interrupting the course.To help assign value to the maintenance of the wetland ecosystems means that we have to find ways for the people to want to preserve and help conserve what land is already in use without taking away the rights of land owners to build as they see fit.Jackson Bottom Wetland Pres...

One could say that the conservation of endangered species to be effective, both biological and social elements of the conservation process must be considered as a basic for minimizing threats (Beasley L. 2007).The conservation strategy should combine both biological and economical, as the Opportunities for Debt Investment in Environmental Conservation which bring debt and conservation turtle together.By combining microfinance lending approaches with performance-based payments for conservation of environmental assets, long-term incentives for environmental conservation and sustainable economic development can be coupled.The aim of the World Conservation Strategy is to achieve the three main objectives of living resource conservation: .Phy...

Public awareness of wetland issues is indeed a key tool in wetland conservation and must be part of any attempt to change attitudes and behavior patterns.Over the past 15 years, innovations including Uganda’s Wetland Policy and decentralized wetlands management have established a firm foundation for more sustainable wetland management.These activities may have significant implications on the wetland, which may be beneficial or destructive to the wetland.Finlayson and Michael (1991) noted that a fundamental cause of urban wetland loss in the past is that few people have demanded their conservation.A recent survey by the US Department of Agriculture found that urbanization was implicated in wetland loss in nearly all surveyed watersheds (9...

This will take around 5 years for the government to complete its restoration plans for the Pallikaranai marsh.“I hope no more garbage will be dumped and burned in the marsh as this has caused major pollution problems in this area.The government must ensure that such problems don’t occur in the future” Says Rashmi.G , a resident of Pallikarnai Experts have stated the need to establish a single coordination agency with all stakeholders like environmental activists, government officials and researchers to establish the restoration of this project.About 114 species of plants are found in the wetland including 29 species of grass.The government, with the agenda of conserving the marsh has sanctioned a programme to take up a restoration projec...

India has been taking steps in giving focused attention to the ecotourism in the state of Kerala.Pucci, Carol (2006).Make yourself at home in India’s Kerala.If nothing is done to try to improve Kerala and impose awareness on people about ecotourism, there is a very high possibility that the beaches will lose its beauty, the rich waters will fade and the wildlife population will decrease.Also, one of their plans is for the periphery of the sanctuaries of Kerala so that it will not be affected with the pressures of tourism.The government of India needs to impose more laws and actions concerning the ecotourism in Kerala so as not to put into waste the beauty that the place has been equipped.

As I am sure you know, plastic isn’t in any urgency to degrade but the people of India don’t seem to recognise this as they throw every unwanted item onto the floor wherever they are.It seems that some areas are simply fed up with the lack of Government intervention and are using there initiatives.The government soon recognised the importance that these forests hold for the conservation of soil and put forward a range of polices trying to curb the destruction; of course, nothing has really changed and thousands of acres are destroyed every year with nothing in the way of ‘replacement’.Because of the varied causes and consequences surrounding this topic, I’ve devoted a whole page to India air pollution.In the big cities like Delhi and Mum...

Not only does this prevent erosion, but this water can then be used for agricultural purposes instead of fresh river water.Irrigation methods such as canals and spraying are unreliable, because while the water is in the canals it can infiltrate into the soil or evaporate before it reaches the crops so extra water has to be used.These can come in the form of pipe leaks and wasteful irrigation methods.Although water resources in South Africa are currently being over-exploited and unsustainably managed, there are multiple methods of conservation which can be implemented to improve South Africa’s permanent water supply.Another step which could be taken to conserve South Africa’s water is wetland conservation.
