Land Protection and Antidegradation

Issues In this Category

Increasing human development and encroachment on natural land is a major issue, especially in areas where natural open space is scarce, or in areas where biomes are uniquely sensitive to changes. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network works to protect and preserve lands from certain kinds of human activity such as mining, quarrying, mega warehouses, or any project that may involve destruction or disturbance of large tracts of land and forest, which can in turn alter the natural hydrology of an area and impact water supplies.
