How Mudbogging Actually Improves The Enviroment

My friend sent this to me:
As a swamp ages, surface vegetation constantly eats away at the vital nutrients and minerals that are contained in the upper level of the soil. Unless there are Mudboggers, once these nutrients are gone, the ecosystem dies. You see, Mudbogging reverses this process by churning the soil. Mud tires drag the vegetation down into the soil where it can decay to become fertile ground for new growth. At the same time, mud tires bring up fertile new soil from the depths of the swamp and spread it evenly over the surface. An excellent byproduct of soil churning is tire ruts. These depressions create an excellent place for water to gather, making them a sanctuary for frogs, their young, birds, and a watering hole for larger animals such as deer. This is why Mudbogging has such a vital role in the ecosystem of
wetlands.
