The Global Restoration Network (GRN), a project of the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER), is a database and web portal to trustworthy and hard-to-find information on all aspects of ecological restoration, from historic ecosystems and causes of degradation to in-depth case studies and proven restoration methods and techniques. The overriding mission of the GRN is to link research, projects, and practitioners in order to foster an innovative exchange of experience, vision, and expertise. It aims to be the central hub for ecological restoration – a vital resource for policymakers, professionals and communities researching options for habitat restoration, writing project proposal, coordinating volunteers, or looking for educational programs and funding.
