This objective includes a comparison with the consequences of naturally revegetated
areas (shrubs and forests) using different experimental areas in Mediterranean mountain areas.
Companies from around the world have come to see how we've revegetated
the surface of the tailings and what sort of amendments did we need to do.
The Sphagnum beads will be spread by hand on to revegetated
areas by staff, volunteers, Peak District National Park rangers and a local contractor.
Habitat Conservation / Wildlife Protection: Vineyards are planted around existing oak trees and oak woodlands; riparian habitat revegetated
along the Napa River; wildlife corridors installed to preserve native habitat and migration patterns of species including kit fox, deer, bobcats and coyotes; river road crossing and fish ladder removed on the Redwood Creek at Knights Valley to allow upstream migration of steelhead; native flowering cover crops are planted to provide habitat and food sources for beneficial insects.
Continuous rehabilitation during operational phase with tailings deposited below ground in mined out pits, open pits backfilled, and land revegetated
and re-contoured to blend with local terrain
Producing hardy plantings, stable soils and improved habitat will gradually blur the line between the revegetated
areas and adjacent undisturbed ones.
The event also marked the one-year anniversary of Wapisiw Lookout, the world's first oil sands tailings pond to be revegetated
Daft told me that in the last five years there have been over 250,000 trees, shrubs, bushes and grasses revegetated
on park land and the prevalence of native wildlife certainly proves that.
1000 hectares of land located 160 kilometres from Albany in south-west Western Australia will be revegetated
to ensure the survival of a number of threatened animal species after Bush Heritage Australia's recent purchase of the Monjebup North Reserve.
This area, once revegetated
, will increase protection of the toe of the existing slope, enhance wildlife habitat and improve water quality.
For this study, the level of SOC was determined in scalded (bare areas without vegetation), scalded-eroded, vegetated, and revegetated
Public land such as parks, revegetated
streamsides and road reserves, all home to often scarce remnant vegetation, would be key components of biolinks, as would properties and habitat purchased for biodiversity under schemes such as those run by Trust for Nature and Bush Heritage Australia.
