  5. Restoration Three Steps in restoring biodiversity: 1. Enhance its quality. • Help in regaining lost understorey, in order to increase the value of the habitats. 2. Secure what you have. • Secure the remnants as the are the habitats of animals. • Control the timing of grazing to allow effective seed production. 3. Link isolated patches. • Rural roads and stream corridors provide opportunities for linking isolated remnants in heavily cleared areas.
