Project Description

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 of harnessing ecological furniture and treatment of topsoil are also discussed.
