Recently, researchers and conservationists came together in Eastern England and dug into a wheat and barley fields to find a lost pond. According to experts, almost 90% of the world's wetlands have vanished over the last three centuries, which could spell disaster for various species and the environment. After the pond is dug out, seeds from long-buried water plants are restored which helps in reviving an entire ecosystem of insects, fish and birds. In North America, natural wetlands created by glaciers have been plowed to grow crops. While these efforts are good, they are not enough to reverse the damage. There must be a balance, a middle ground that benefits both the farmers and protecting wildlife.
