Peggy Svoboda has been helping Saltmarsh to recover on the Hunter River Estuary near Newcastle in NSW. This video outlines the significant benefits of the restoration project as a Ramsar site of significance for migratory shorebirds and the process of constructing saltmarsh communities. Contouring of the landscape, Juncus acutus removal and riparian restoration in the [...]
Large scale reconstruction of semi-arid ecosystems in south-west Western Australia :: Justin Jonson :: Seminar 2014mitra
This video describes a landscape scale project, Gondwana link, which aims to connect a fragmented landscape in Western Australia from the wet forests to the deserts. The process of gathering information to build a picture of the landscape vegetation communities and the continuous improvement cycle which saw the on-ground restoration delivered in ‘broad brush strokes [...]
If you want to be inspired by the regenerative capacity of nature, Nigel Tucker’s talk reflecting on his lifelong observations and monitored project outcomes is the video for you. The role of disturbance and dispersal is discussed in the context of regeneration and resilience using the example of a 300km pipeline in PNG. The effects [...]

This page contains lots of links to presentations from conferences and field days that align with the regenTV themes and support the learning resources. These videos have been produced by the event organisers.
In order to provide corridors of connectivity for fauna habitat needs and the ability for flora to migrate as a response to climate change and landscape fragmentation, large-scale linkage partnership projects have been Scaling Up. The worksheets explore landscape scale projects that are being implemented and provide numerous examples and links to further information to explore the topic with reference to the National Restoration Standards.
These resources explore the issues around species selection and provenance within the context of a fragmented landscape in a climate-changing world. The fact sheet provides a summary of Principles 1 and 3 and Appendix 3 from the National Restoration Standards. The student worksheets investigate establishing seed production facilities and provenance selection to optimise species’ resilience.
These resources explore Principle 2 of the Standards and identifying the appropriate ecological restoration approach. The fact sheet discusses how site resilience is assessed and the obstacles to recovery that need to be considered in choosing a restoration approach. The worksheet requires students to explore a local site and conduct a resilience assessment as well as deepening their understanding of why certain approaches are undertaken through video case studies.

RegenTV is AABR’s online repository of ecological restoration case studies filmed at field trips, forums and seminars. The three year program has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust. The comprehensive and inspirational collection of bush regeneration expertise is being compiled into video format by Virginia Bear of Little Gecko Media [...]
These learning materials summarise Principles 1 and 4 of the National Standards covering the importance of developing a model reference ecosystem and using the National Restoration Standard’s project evaluation tools. The worksheet delves into the details of the attributes of an ecosystem that need to be considered when defining and evaluating your project using the National Standards’ proformas.
