Positive News For Old Mining Sites
While mining regulations have changed a lot over the decades, there are still vast areas of land where mining has completely destroyed nature and the landscape. But an organization called Green Forests Work has stepped up to the challenge.
In just a short space of time, they have planted over 3 million trees in the Appalachian region of the USA. And these are predominantly on land that coal mining has severely damaged.
A report in The European Sting has highlighted some of the organization’s goals.
Efforts such as these are vital for combating climate change, but they also provide a huge amount of relief for nature and wildlife. By reconnecting migration routes and providing more shelter for animals, we could see many old species flourish again.
There’s also hope that more governments are supporting such organizations to start reversing the immense damage of deforestation around the world.
