Question

Many years ago, a wetland area was filled in to build a baseball field and playground. Now the town proposes to restore the area to become a shallow pond surrounded by a marsh. What do you think are the strongest arguments for and against this plan? What information would help people decide whether or not to support the plan?

Solution

Verified

Restoring a wetland can be very beneficial to animals, plants, and even humans. Wetlands are considered as productive ecosystems due to its numerous benefits that include supporting diverse life-forms, preventing floods, improving the water quality by filtering pollutants and providing a source of livelihood for people that live near the area. When you come to think of it, wetland restoration can help lessen the problems that we are facing due to the effects of global warming and depletion of natural resources.
