ESTABLISHING AN ECOLOGICALLY HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NATURE AND CULTURE
We would like to offer to you the latest technology in a special blue field of ecological restoration. Across the globe, centuries of unsustainable activities have damaged the aquatic, marine, and terrestrial environments that underpin our economies and societies and give rise to a diversity ofwildlife and plants. We are dedicated to reversing this degradation and restoring the earth's ecologiand nature.
Promote ecological restoration as a means of sustaining the diversity of life on Earth and re- establishing an ecologically healthy relationship between nature and culture.
Promote ecological restoration as a fundamental component of conservation and sustainable development programs throughout the world by virtue of its inherent capacity to provide people with the opportunity to repair ecological damage and improve the human life condition.
Our Guiding Principles
These underlying principles guide and inform our work:
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.
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 determining and prioritizing the scientific needs of the field.
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. It is no secret that today the challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss, sustainable resource extraction and human poverty.
We stand firm in our belief that ecological restoration plays a crucial role in mitigating and adapting to these challenges.
We envision a future where ecological restoration is widely and effectively implemented to re- establish and enhance biodiversity, ecosystem services, and human well-being.
Since our incorporation we have made it our mission to advance the field of ecological restoration using our technologies.
