The main goal is that the maintenance of our biodiversity despite the scarcity. With that said, shifts in wildlife populations often indicate that more extensive environmental restoration and protection problems. We will further discuss this through Wildlife Habitat Restoration.
What endangers a habitat?
As a result of roads, power lines, and other development, the Lehigh Valley is heavily fragmented. These activities lead to the shrinkage of existing and future wildlife habitats and the spread of invasive species.
Why is this a cause for concern?
When the environment deteriorates, native flora and fauna may become extinct. Adverse or dangerous effects can also occur when there is a lack of room for various species.
How can we restore these habitats?
As the townships throughout the Lehigh River Watershed continue to expand, the obligation to maintain environmental integrity increases.
We work with landowners and communities to restore, enhance, and protect degraded and damaged habitats. We should assist in the creation and facilitation of naturally managed corridors and non-predatory plants with indigenous species.
This procedure also applies to noninvasive plants that should be considered invasive and good management practices in place.
