The success and longevity of restoration projects is intertwined with the relationships that are developed with stakeholders at the beginning and throughout a project. By Engaging Others,a project can enable environmental, social, cultural and economic outcomes to be delivered and provide benefits long after ‘the project’ formally ends. The fact sheet provides an overview of [...]

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.
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.
