Marsh threatened by construction. This freshwater marsh is being threatened by the construction of a road (right) to provide access to a pharmaceutical factory (upper left). A marsh has a diverse ecology of plants and animals that are not found elsewhere. Changes, such as drainage of the water, would upset the delicate balance of the ecosystem and kill many of the plants and animals. Photographed in Dartford, Kent, England.
