Restoration Handbooks

To support the aims of ReMeMaRe, a suite of “how to” practical habitat restoration handbooks for seagrass, saltmarsh, native oyster restoration have been produced. These are supported by a handbook for restoring estuarine and coastal habitats with dredged sediment.

The four handbooks, alongside additional guidance, can be accessed by following the links below.

Restoration Infographics

In the publication of the restoration handbooks (above), the ReMeMaRe partners produced a series of infographics and illustrations. These are now available to download from the 'Resources' page.


Additional Guidance

Additional guidance and information relating to estuarine and coastal restoration can be accessed by following the links below.

Restoration Potential Maps

A set of “where to” restoration potential maps have also been produced for the three priority habitats. Based on factors such as biogeographic ranges, these maps provide a high-level, national scale overview of sites where successful restoration may be possible. One of the next steps of ReMeMaRe will involve the refinement of these maps at a more regional or local level, in order to better support place-based delivery in the future.

The restoration potential maps and more information as to how they were developed, can be accessed by following the links below.

Additional Mapping Resources

In addition to the restoration potential maps above, there are a number of other mapping data layers available that may be of use to stakeholders involved or interested in estuarine and coastal habitat and ecosystem restoration.
