Ecosystem Restoration and Remediation

Ecosystem Restoration and Remediation

At Coldstream Nature-Based Solutions we know that sometimes nature needs a helping hand to repair the damage that has been done more quickly than just waiting for natural regeneration to occur.  We work with natural systems to restore and revitalize ecological services that have been damaged through industrial actions, pollution, habitat destruction and neglect.

 

We use a place-based approach to ensure that the actions we recommend and implement are suitable both for the area itself and for the project objectives.  We can do this work for you, or build your team’s capacity to engage in restoration and remediation actions.  Our services include:
