MSc in Ecological Restoration is an outstanding program that intends educating the world about the ecological disaster the world is likely to face, if corrective steps aren't taken in time. World over we have been using our natural resources indiscriminately. We have polluted our lakes, rivers and even the oceans. Ponds and lakes are disappearing. Glaciers are melting and the sea level is rising. It is feared that in the coming years the world will face the problem of global warming in terms of rising seas and cities getting submerged under the water. Ecological restoration on the other hand seeks to reverse the damages. It seeks to restore the habitat, say for example for the endangered species. It seeks to critically assess and restore degraded ecosystems back to health.
