Ecological restoration is an engaging and inclusive process.

Restoration embraces the interrelationships between nature and culture, engages all sectors of society, and enables full and effective participation of indigenous, local and disenfranchised communities.

Principles that guide Our Work.

Ecological restoration requires the integration of knowledge and practice.

Science and other forms of knowledge are essential for designing, implementing and monitoring restoration projects and programs. At the same time, lessons learned from practical experiences are essential for informing our scientific understanding of ecosystems and how to apply these concepts in future projects

Ecological restoration is policy-relevant and essential.

Restoration is a critical tool for achieving biodiversity conservation, mitigating and adapting to climate change, enhancing ecosystem services, fostering sustainable socioeconomic development, and improving human health and well-being.

Ecological restoration is practiced locally with global implications.

Restoration takes place in all regions of the world, with local actions having regional and global benefits for nature and people.
