Carbon Landscapes is working in partnership with Heartwood and landowners with private forestry plantations, to transition low-value timber into high-value Koala habitat. Rather than clear low-value blue gum plantations, we are working with foresters to preserve these plantations, adding other biodiversity values such as mid and lower story indigenous plants and leaving fallen timber to create habitat for other native fauna.
Carbon Landscapes is excited to announce that it has purchased over 90 hectares of land adjacent to the Grampians National Park, to begin its first stage of its Gariwerd Restoration Project. Surrounded by three sides of the Park, this ex-bluegum plantation, with existing ephemeral wetlands and patches of remnant vegetation, will be restored back to its original vegetation type to bring back native mammal species such as the Long-nosed Potoroo.
Carbon Landscapes is partnering with Odonata, Natural Glenelg Trust and the Stony Rises Land Management Network to ‘rewild’ over 400 hectares of threatened Stony Rise Woodland with fauna species such as the Spotted-tailed Quoll, Koala and Long-nosed Potoroo.
Over 500 hectares of biolinks will be created within the Great Dividing Range, through an agreement between Carbon Landscapes and Heartwood Plantations. As part of the agreement, Carbon Landscapes will restore areas of native forest, heathland and woodland adjacent to 1,000’s of hectares for regenerative forestry and recreate habitat for a number of threatened animal species such as the Yellow-bellied Glider, Masked Owl and Southern Brown Bandicoot.
