PROTECTING OR RESTORING CANTERBURY BIODIVERSITY WITH PROPER REVEGETATION

Are you undertaking a revegetation project in Canterbury? Taking the time to rebuild an area of land that has been disrupted by either natural causes, such as floods or fires, or those that are man-made, like mining, is an honourable and crucial mission to continue the vibrancy of our environment. But in a time of a changing climate and the grim legacies of generations of humankind’s impact, it must be done in an appropriate way that attracts and promotes life.

Here at Goughs Nurseries, we are passionate about either providing direct information, or point our clients in the right direction, to help with their Canterbury revegetation projects to build stronger biodiversity in their area.

ONLY INTRODUCE NATIVE PLANTS IN YOUR REVEGETATION PROJECT TO PROMOTE BIODIVERSITY

An area consisting of various animals, plants, birds and insects all interacting with each other are referred to as communities. In order for these communities to not only survive, but thrive, they need unimpaired access to the environmental elements of their ecosystem, such as forest lands and rivers. Revegetation projects looking to restore the biodiversity of certain areas is the process of reintroducing or restoring these environmental factors to attract native wildlife and plants to reclaim the land. It is therefore crucial not to simply introduce foreign plants that were not traditionally part of this ecosystem, as it will severely alter the landscape and hamper proper biodiversity.

There are many different plants to introduce to a space that attract various birds, bees, lizards, insects and more. Speak with specialists at the Goughs Nurseries to understand what is best for your biodiversity project.
