Ecosystem restoration can happen at a rapid pace
Ecosystem restoration means assisting in the recovery of ecosystems that have been degraded or destroyed, as well as conserving the ecosystems that are still intact. This is concrete action that we can take in our immediate environment, you just need some knowledge and tools on how to get started.
Healthier ecosystems, with richer biodiversity, yield greater benefits such as more fertile soils and larger stores of greenhouse gases. It is also estimated that 60% of expected species extinctions could be avoided through the effective restoration of 15% of converted lands (source).
Ecosystems can be restored at a very rapid pace if humans do not interfere with destructive practises that are largely used all over the world in different biomes. The sooner and quicker we do this, the faster it can turn into a movement to fight the destruction that is happening on a mass scale level.
Look at this image below from Palk Bay, India and the speed of restoration when the land is left alone and some basic techniques are applied to help the growth.
Our ecosystem restoration course will help you to get started no matter where you are living. It will give you the ecological tools needed and help you feel like an active participant in ecosystem restoration.
