By way of its members, publications, conferences, policy work, and outreach, SER defines and delivers excellence in the field of restoration and provides a singular platform for knowledge exchange and learning.

Every two years, the SER World Conference on Ecological Restoration brings together the foremost experts in the scientific, technical, socio-economic, and policy dimensions of restoring damaged and degraded ecosystems. The conference fosters knowledge sharing and debate around big-picture issues and broad trends, as well as specific tools, techniques, research, innovations, and policies for restoration.

The Society for Ecological Restoration Australasia (SER-A) is a neutral, independent, non-profit organization that connects restoration industries across Australasia and through the peak international body for restoration (SER) globally.

SER-A is infused with the energy of over 345 members – individuals and organizations who are actively engaged in ecologically-sensitive repair and management of ecosystems through an unusually broad array of experience, knowledge sets and cultural perspectives. They are scientists, planners, administrators, ecological consultants, natural areas managers, growers, community activists, and volunteers, among others.

Founded in 2011, SER-A now boasts members in 28 countries, and provides restoration support throughout Australasia. This chapter expands the membership from the previous Australian Chapter (in operation for the preceding 12 years) to encompass all of Australasia. SER-A dovetails with the other 15 SER chapters that serve the regions of Africa, Latin America, North America, and Europe and their 4,600 global members. The presence of the peak international body for restoration represents a milestone for Australasian industries in the region.

With SER (the parent body) recognized by public and private enterprises as the source for expertise on restoration science, practice and policy, SER-A aims to further develop regional expertise and achieve its objectives through cooperation with partner organizations and the work of its Australasian membership.
