Ecosystem Services

Up to two-thirds of all crops require some degree of animal pollination to reach their maximum yields, and natural habitat around farmlands can support healthy populations of wild pollinators by providing them with foraging and nesting resources.

Fertilizers like nitrogen are a major source pollution to freshwater systems and drinking water. However, some of it may be retained by healthy ecosystems, and this nitrogen retention regulating drinking water quality is one of nature’s contributions to people.

Coastal habitats such as coral reefs, mangroves, salt marsh, or sea grass, attenuate waves and protect the shorelines from the impacts of storms, such as floods and erosion.
