Bio·R was born from a need for a non-profit to drive the restoration of woodlands in heavily cleared landscapes of South Australia to arrest the ongoing and imminent decline of native species.
Our philosophy of what we do is built into our name. The Bio in Bio·R stands for Biodiversity and the R stands for Reconstruct, Research and Reconnect.
Bio·R appreciates that to reconstruct habitat for biodiversity requires the development of complex habitat features at landscape and regional scales.
We recognise the importance of science in planning to deliver this, so we support research to continually improve our theoretical and practical knowledge, such as improving our understanding of the habitat needs of declining species.
Bio·R also acknowledges the long-term commitment required to ensure the longevity of reconstructed habitats, so we work to reconnect the community to natural systems and to develop intergenerational ownership.
Donors and volunteers are crucial to support our annual planting festivals. If you are interested in helping, please consider making a regular donation to support our work and sign up to hear about volunteer opportunities at our planting festivals.
We’ll keep you updated about local volunteer opportunities, Bio·R news and more.
