Monitoring

Monitoring is used to measure certain aspects of an ecosystem before, during, and after restoration work is carried out. Changes in aspects such as native vegetation cover, pest animal browse levels, species diversity, and pest plant numbers/mass are often measured.

Frequently forming a core component of larger restoration projects, Kaitiaki o te Ngahere believes monitoring to be fundamental to project success and the development of best practice approaches to ecological restoration.
