The Changing Nature project is a multi-year initiative of students in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Victoria. Working under the supervision of Prof. Eric Higgs, students prepare carefully curated case studies examining ecosystems and landscapes that are changing in response to environmental, ecological, and cultural changes, and for which new ideas and approaches are needed for effective ecological restoration. The cases range in scale from specific sites to whole regions. Many address issues in and around Victoria, British Columbia, while others range widely. Students are mostly senior undergraduates, and registered in Environmental Studies 445 (formerly ES 482).
