             Our Aim
   The goal of our project was to
   discourage trespassing in an
 abandoned and dangerous quarry.
 We decided that the best way to go
about this was to take any part of the
quarry that was not in use and ‘invite
          the community in’.
              Our Testing.
• Our samples we put through a series of
  tests. From these we got a table of results.
• From these we could tell which type of
  fish and plants we could use to populate
  the quarry in the future.
