The field of ecological restoration has matured considerably over the last three decades. Restoration of degraded ecosystems has grown from a relatively minor component of natural resource management to a dominant activity in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems across the globe. Worldwide, restoration is now an over three trillion dollar per year activity. As the scope and scale of restoration increases, there is a corresponding need for increased training, technical guidance, and sharing of lessons learned, in order to achieve desired ecological and social benefits.

In 2016, the Society for Ecological Restoration partnered with University of Montana and Ecological Connections to assess growth in US and Canadian academic programs in ecological restoration over the last decade. The June 2016 assessment is available for download here (499 KB).

Since then, the academic program listing has been updated to expand the geographic range and reflect newly established programs.
