Welcome to the Restoration Institute

The Restoration Institute is a joint initiative of the School of Environmental Studies and Restoration of Natural Systems Program at the University of Victoria based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

Please browse the website to learn more about past Institutes, our projects and people.

The Restoration Institute is working in partnership with the University of Waterloo to develop RE-GEN, an international collaboration to advance world-class learning and collaboration among university graduate programs in restoration and intervention ecology. Through learning and research programs, RE-GEN fosters effective, efficient and engaging ecosystem intervention within the context of complex socio-ecological issues and rapid environmental change.  Its inaugural graduate field course will be held in summer 2015.
