Natural solutions to rehabilitate degraded urban marine ecosystems

Dr Ana Bugnot

Native biodiversity has natural capacities to boost good microbial processes, aiding in the remediation of contaminated systems. However, this biodiversity is often lost or degraded in the areas where its beneficial functions are needed the most.

I am reintroducing native biodiversity into urban coastal ecosystems to kick-start their recovery.

This project was supported by the City of Sydney and in collaboration with the department of Primary Industries of NSW and Sydney Water.
