Our project will be about restoring and increasing biodiversity in Aru-Lõuna limestone quarry. Because the area is quite large we have an idea to reclamate quarry to different landscapes and plant communities, such as: lake, forest, bog, beach, fishing site and birdwatching tower. Since there are many sand martin nesting sites in a quarry and around it, with reclamation we would also focus on creating habitats for sand martins as they are endangered species. In cooperation with the locals we wish that the outcome of this project is going to be successful.
