Reading the meadowlands, for me, was just ok. I do, however, enjoy the Ideas portrayed in the book. As all of you probably know, wetlands are an important asset of a healthy environment. The problem is, we have a tendency to disturb, pollute, and even destroy them. For those of you who are not quite sure how wetlands keep the environment healthy, just think about a water filter. They work kind of like a natural water filter. What I mean is, the natural pollution brought about by natural storms and animals.
These are some of the most biologically diverse ecosystems on the planet that house a wide variety of plants and animals. some that we have not discovered yet. this brings about the issue we should have with disturbing these environments. if we destroy a part of them, we could be destroying a plant or animal that could be useful. We could be destroying an environment that an undiscovered animal lives in and drive them into extinction. they also work as a great flood control system.
it is in our best interest to save and preserve these lands because they are imperative to a lot of certain areas. We need to be aware of our actions and how we are affecting the world.
