Bush Habitat Restoration is committed to providing a range of high quality specialist services to clients in natural area restoration.
We work mainly within the area of Greater Sydney and Illawarra region. The experience and skills of our team in ecological restoration is comprehensive, combining tertiary education, fieldwork, teaching, bushcare training, consultancy and administration. Members of the Co-operative have worked in all the major ecological communities of the Sydney and Illawarra regions, including many Endangered Ecological Communities (EECs). Our members are passionate about the natural environment, hence many participate in volunteering work with programs run by government, non-government and not-for-profit organisations.
In the Sydney region we have undertaken ecological restoration work in EECs such as (but not limited to); Cumberland Plain Woodland (critically endangered), Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub (critically endangered), Sydney Blue Gum High Forest (critically endangered), Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest (endangered) and Sydney Freshwater Wetlands (endangered). In the Illawarra, EEC’s include; Illawarra Subtropical Rainforest (endangered), Swamp Oak Floodplain Forest (endangered), Coastal Sand Bangalay-Blackbutt Forest (endangered) and Themeda Grasslands on Coastal Headlands (endangered). We have extensive experience in monitoring biodiversity using transects, quadrats and photo-points on regeneration sites.
