This project is situated to the eastern part of the Mokrá quarry near Brno. There is a unique possibility to connect mining area with surrounding nature of the southern part of Moravian karst just in that suitable place.
The project was divided into three parts. The first focused on the monitoring of actual fauna and flora in the quarry and it’s closed surrounding. The results of these investigations were then assembled into the study with the aim to propose a stabilization of biodiversity and to create a mosaic of various biotopes in the second project part. The third part is highly theoretical, because the mining area is still active. However, was creating a way to inform the public about limestone quarries as hot-spots of biodiversity and about near-natural restoration of habitats in the future. The area is namely suitable for establishment of natural hiking-trail with some small artifacts related to land-art etc.
The final connection of these three project parts brings interesting information from many scientific and biotechnological professions. This study can be shown as an example how to utilize theoretical scientific information from different branches of biology, ecology and nature protection in a reclamation proposal.
The project won the 1st Prize in National Quarry Life Award in 2014 in the Czech Republic.
