Community Involvement in Restoration

Shelley Washington (NZ Landcare Trust, Christchurch)

People have different reasons for doing restoration such as restoring habitat for nature's sake, for future and present generations to enjoy, and in some cases, for economic benefit. Restoration is popular because it has significant meaning in people's lives, and it is a tangible, enjoyable way for people to help enhance indigenous biodiversity through recreating areas of indigenous habitat and natural areas for people to enjoy.

The ultimate success of restoration projects depend on ongoing human commitment and participation. Such commitment is influenced by the level of meaning, satisfaction and achievement restoration can bring to people's lives.
