Successful ecological restoration on a global scale requires a global perspective. Restoration ecology is a new science and many of its practitioners are pioneering projects on a local level with little connection to the larger community. The ERA provides the means to connect the dots between people and projects by building ties, promoting collaboration, and encouraging learning from demonstration restoration sites. ERA members will build their expertise by exchanging ideas and establishing a network of communication through which the larger context of their work can emerge. We are building a vibrant restoration community that will facilitate the expansion of restoration ecology projects worldwide.
