This research aims to improve the coordination, scalability and evaluation of wetland rehabilitation, shellfish reef restoration, beach restoration, mangrove and seagrass recovery, kelp and coral restoration and marine pest control. It will explore novel approaches to infrastructure design in partnership with industry, for example habitat engineering to achieve ‘living[1]shorelines’, and maximising blue-carbon sequestration.

We will also apply research to control species, and protect habitats, including in association with Indigenous communities.
