It is important that as human beings we reduce our ecological footprint. Human beings have impacted local ecosystems in a variety of ways, which can lead to endangerment or extinction of species and pollution.

In areas that have been negatively impacted by human beings, municipalities and other organizations propose restoration plans. Restoration ecology is a set of strategies that are used to restore an area to the former level of biodiversity, both in the number of organisms and the variety of organisms.

In this activity, students will create a restoration plan for a local space of their choosing.
