SERA announced the launch of the National Standards for Ecological Restoration on 15 March 2016 at the National Seed Science Forum, Mt Annan Botanic Gardens, Sydney. Any enquiries may be emailed to

The Standards have been designed to encourage all restoration and rehabilitation projects in Australia to reach their highest potential.

The story so far...

The Society for Ecological Restoration Australasia (SERA) and 12 partner organizations* developed the national Standards over a three year period - carefully considering the needs of all stakeholders.

The drafting process involved four formal drafts, collectively worked on by the partners in consultation with hundreds of key stakeholders including agencies, researchers and industry organisations and individual practitioners.

* The SERA board's Principles and Standards Reference group acknowledges the close collaboration of the following Partners and Advisors in the preparation of these standards:
Australian Association of Bush Regenerators (AABR), Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA), Australian Network for Plant Conservation (ANPC), Australian Seed Bank Partnership (ASBP), Bush Heritage Australia (BHA), Gondwana Link, Greening Australia (GA), Indigenous Flora and Fauna Association (IFFA), The Nature Conservancy (TNC) (Advisor), Trees For Life (TFL), Trust for Nature (TFN Vic) and WetlandCare Australia (WCA).
