Why Land Reclamation and Conservation?

Land reclamation usually known as reclamation, and also known as land fill, is the process of creating new land from oceans, seas, riverbeds or lake beds. The land reclaimed is known as reclamation ground or land fill. Reclaiming damaged land allows residents to thrive and flourish, restores the natural order of various species, and restores the quality of water. Land conservation is the process of protecting natural land and returning developed land to its natural state. Protecting valuable, conservable land is essential to America's environmental health and economic vitality.
