Conservation of Georgia’s wildlife diversity requires protection of intact natural habitats as well as restoration or enhancement of habitats that have been negatively impacted by human activities. Habitat restoration includes a wide variety of activities and programs to restore more natural environmental conditions, ecological processes, and species diversity. Examples include prescribed fire programs to restore and maintain fire-adapted communities, improvements in hydrologic conditions to enhance aquatic and wetland habitats, thinning of dense pine stands to improve understory conditions, reintroduction of native plants and animals, and control of invasive species.
