Reflection- Day 4 Elgin Patt

I learnt that by controlling certain human activities in a certain area, you can create an area in which the natural environment can thrive. Taking Can Gio Biosphere as in example, the government has been paying volunteer families that are provided housing in the area to take care of the organisms there, and giving them the authority to report any offenders that are harming the area that they are looking after. I find that due to the conservation, the mangrove swamp in the biosphere also acts as a natural sewage system for the waste coming from the factories in the city, therefore it plays an important part.
