The concept is in practice to build and create habitats for valuable plants and animals in the form of small, limited and defined land- and water areas, e.g. water ponds for frogs and reptiles, nests for wild bees and bumblebees etc.
With this concept, areas with low inherent natural and ecosystem values can be modified and rebuilt in order to enhance biodiversity. Advanced practice in conservation and remediation biology!
