Fig. 01. Light and deep violet swaths indicate existing land collapse or potential soil erosion due to lack of ground cover and steep areas along the creek banks. Light green indicates the presence of vegetation but may not be sufficient to prevent soil erosion or land collapse.
The water in Mallig Creek is brown in color. This indicates significant bank erosion and soil erosion in areas that empty their rainwater into the creek. We have undertaken preliminary survey of the extent of potential soil erosion and land collapse in the Santo Tomas farms slated for our EcoCulture projects. This assessment will be used to design remediation approaches to avert further erosion in the Santo Tomas farms.
Our goal is to design EcoCulture techniques including the use of pioneer plants that will aid to create the environment that will pave the ground for more stable succession to mature and biodiverse ecosystem.Read more: Preliminary Assessment of the Banks of Mallig Creek
