Product description

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Over recent centuries, natural habitat loss in the British Isles, and indeed worldwide, has been very extensive and damaging to wildlife. Wetlands such as rivers, streams, estuaries, salt marshes, bogs and lakes have all suffered. The great biological species diversity which natural wetlands support make them especially worth conserving. At the same time, industrial activity gives us a rare opportunity to create completely new wetland habitats for wildlife. We clearly need an adequate supply of building materials for the future. By excavating sand and gravel quarries, the aggregates industry creates around 400 to 500 hectares of new lakes each year in the UK. the total UK area of flooded disused sand and gravel quarries is around 15000 hectares. The potential after uses of this resource are many and can range from intensive activities such as coarse fishing, put-and-take trout angling, scuba diving, sailing and water skiing, through to carefully managed nature reserves.
