Phosphate Mining - Biological Diversity

The Mining Process. Strip mining for phosphate rock violently transforms the environment, irreparably changing the character of the natural landscape. In many cases mines displace plants and animals and eat up thousands of acres of valuable habitat that are impossible to restore to their natural state. In Florida habitat loss is a significant issue, particularly for at-risk species such as the
