Overview

Restorative engineering is a new approach to engineering of ecosystems to manage complex and endangered ecological communities. It uses a multi-disciplinary approach to understand natural systems so that they can be reconstructed biomimetically.

Join William Glamore, Water Research Laboratory UNSW and Kylie Russell, Port Stephens Fisheries Institute, as they demonstrate how restorative engineering has been successfully used in Australian projects.
