Regenerative Agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices to restore the natural systems.


The practices lead to increased biodiversity, enriched soils, improved watersheds, and enhanced ecosystem services.

 

For companies, it provides an opportunity to fight climate change while supporting farmers and building a more resilient agricultural system. (TGI, Savory)

Birds are important providers of ecosystem services and are a key indicator for biodiversity. Yet, their populations are in sharp decline worldwide, mainly due to habitat loss.  

Bird friendly gardens, landscapes and agriculture provide food, refugia, protection and nesting sites, whereby contributing to population recovery and regeneration.
