General principles of ecological restoration monitoring

Effective: it must “re-establish and maintain the values of the protected area”

Efficient: it must “maximize beneficial outcomes while minimizing costs in time, resources and effort”

Engaging: it must collaborate with partners and stakeholders, promote participation and enhance visitor experience

Methodology of ecosystem evaluation

To define the goals of ecological restoration and delimit the protected areas, we have:

  • Defined the conservation state of the ecosystem (we have evaluate to what extent it is degraded and needs to be restored);
  • Defined the reference ecosystem;
  • Evaluated the conservation state of the current ecosystem in comparison with the reference ecosystem.

The conservation state of each habitat is qualitatively evaluated by a scale of 4 status:
