The aim of this project is to increase the biodiversity of Aru-Lõuna limestone quarry and to create novel ecosystems using various innovative methods. It is necessary to combine ecological and social aspects and to raise the awareness about disappearing communities and species loss. By observing one specific quarry, we would like to educate people about the geological history of the mining area, current state of local biodiversity, and how the novel ecosystems will be created using scientific methods. Thus, we would combine the past, present and the future.
