Borderlands Habitat Restoration Initiative has pioneered a 3-pillared approach to habitat restoration in the Arizona/Sonora Borderland region by:
1) Restoring the physical processes such as stream flow and groundwater recharge necessary to support both people and wildlife.
2) Restoring vegetation and filling gaps at the base of the food chains that support biological diversity.
3) Reconnecting people and nature by engaging local citizens in the restoration of local ecosystem services.
