We Create Habitat

Revegetation programs usually consist of just planting a quota of trees. Bio·R is different; we create habitats to halt the declines of our native wildlife and grow biodiversity.

What we do differently

To help save our species, Bio·R reconstructs habitats that are built to meet their specific requirements, mimicking natural vegetation they use with the full and complex complement of plant species including grasses, herbs and shrubs, as well as trees. Importantly, Bio·R aims to build habitats that match the original densities and diversities of plants and how the various plant species are intermixed, as this determines the types and numbers of animal species that can be supported in the new habitats. 

Standard revegetation projects may only revegetate a hectare or two. Bio·R aims to reconstruct sufficient habitat at landscape and regional scales that will genuinely meet the needs of wildlife and arrest their declines at the regional scale. 

Across heavily-cleared agricultural areas, thousands of hectares of reconstructed habitat are needed to maintain viable populations of every species. This means we are building habitat at a very large scale.
