Restoring anything in an ecological setting is rarely a straightforward challenge. Past, current, and future land use; hydrology, climate, and a host of other possible influences need to be taken into account. The restoration goal needs to be decided upon, species selected, and contractors chosen. Regulatory requirements may also exist, especially if working on ecosystems with or near to water. Exploring and understanding issues such as these form the starting point for any successful ecological restoration project.
