About us

The Society for Ecological Restoration International (SER) is a non-profit organization infused with the energy of involved members — individuals and organizations — who are actively engaged in ecologically sensitive repair and management of ecosystems.

Our mission is to promote ecological restoration as a means of sustaining the diversity of life on Earth and reestablishing an ecologically healthy relationship between nature and culture.


Since its incorporation in 1988, the Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) has given voice to the field of ecological restoration and has become known as the leader in this emerging discipline. With members in over 70 countries, SER is a dynamic global network that fosters the exchange of knowledge and expertise among ecological restoration practitioners and scientists from diverse disciplines.

SER promotes ecological restoration and best practices by establishing regional chapters, hosting biannual conferences, and advising international organizations with policy and legislation. SER also maintains active, online networks of restorationists, including the Global Restoration Network (GRN) and Indigenous Peoples' Restoration Network (IPRN). The Society's collection of publications includes Restoration Ecology, a peer-reviewed journal, The Science and Practice of Ecological Restoration, a book series published in collaboration with Island Press, as well as Ecological Restoration andEcological Management & Restoration, two affiliated journals.

The Society for Ecological Restoration is a registered not-for-profit organization under Section 501(c)3 of the US Internal Revenue Code.
