Landscape ecology and restoration ecology are two mutually beneficial disciplines (1). Landscape ecology principles can guide the selection of restoration sites, help to establish realistic project goals and advise on appropriate spatial configurations of restored habitat. Restoration ecology aids landscape ecology by providing an opportunity to experiment over large spatial scales and validate landscape ecology dynamic models. Here we examine the application of landscape ecology and meta-population theory in creating a framework for restoring seagrass meadows in Port Curtis and Rodd’s bay (Central Queensland, Australia). Port Curtis is one of the highest risk regions for seagrass loss in Queensland (2). With substantial losses of seagrass in this region and accelerating industrial and Port development the need for restoration and creation has become increasingly important.
