The UN decade on Ecosystem Restoration is upon us. As damage, degradation and destruction of ecosystems continues, the need for ecological restoration is growing. Ecological restoration is essential from a conservation perspective and the ecosystem services provided to all of us. Botanical institutions are uniquely placed to offer a range of services to enhance the quality of restoration and scale up restoration efforts to meet demand. This survey looks at current barriers for botanic institutions to further engage with ecological restoration. It will feed into the training and support offered by the Ecological Restoration Alliance of Botanic Gardens for current non-members. A copy of the study, once complete, will be made available to all those who have taken part.

The survey will only take 15 minutes to complete.

This survey is conducted by an MSc student in collaboration with BGCI. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Jono:

The deadline for providing responses is Wednesday 4th August 2021.
