Show Notes

Today’s episode is all about restoration… specifically, Biocultural Restoration and how this field of science brings different disciplines into a synthesized approach. This approach aims to restore and revitalize both ecosystems and the cultures that were originally responsible for them. We discuss everything from our experience with this field of study in our graduate program to definitions and paradigms that surround ecological restoration. We also go over some of the drawbacks to ecological restoration, how biocultural restoration addresses these drawbacks, and how all of this relates to bringing worldviews together and integrating knowledge systems.

Some of the main ideas we talk about are:

- It's important for everyone to have a seat at the table... this includes scientists, managers, and the community they're working with.

- What’s missing from ecological restoration... an ongoing Cultural Context

- Restoration Ecology Myths: Carbon Copy and Sysiphus Complex

- Definitions of ecological, biocultural, and reciprocal restoration

- The value of other worldviews and working together

- Integrating different Ways of Knowing
