The priority areas of our project include preserving local rare plant species, restoring animal habitats, increasing the biodiversity after mining works, soil protection and further recovery, improving public awareness.
Ecological path is so-called tourist route, which would give a possibility to hold educational activities among the students and the local population, to enlarge their knowledge about the quarries ecosystem and to show society that it is necessary to appreciate and to preserve the unique nature o
Develop ecological technologies for the future using of the territory of Zheltokamenka quarry as depositary "The red list plants" and as “Green lesson” for environmental Education.
Zheltokamenka quarry, with an active mining area of 82 hectares, has about 40 hectares of slope surfaces remaining after the extraction of limestone. Actual problem is the lack of suitable technologies for increasing biodiversity in such areas.
In the modern world the mining territories are very often perceived by the public as lifeless ruins and result of the negative and not rational attitude of the human to the nature.
The project will investigate potential 'upgrades' in ecological restoration at mineral extraction sites, with a view to these being supplied as biodiversity offsets.
Whatley Quarry has the advantage of a long-standing and progressive restoration scheme, incorporating woodland planting at various stages of development: existing semi-natural woodland incorporated into the scheme; established new stands of various ages; and, further planned planting as part of t
Lakes and wetlands are hotspots of biodiversity in the landscape. They support complex communities of fauna and flora and providing important ecosystem services for the wetland and wider catchment.
Needingworth Quarry is the location for an exciting wetland restoration project arising from a collaboration between Hanson and the RSPB.
