Carbon Landscapes is partnering with some of Australia’s leading environmental groups to recreate habitats and rewild landscapes. Find out more on some of our exciting projects below.
Little Dog Island Conservation Project
Carbon Landscapes is working with Nooramunga Trust, Rendere Trust and EcoGipps to manage a newly acquired conservation island near Wilsons Promontory in South Gippsland. The 150-acre island is located in Corner Inlet, a Ramsar-listed Wetland of International Importance and a nature haven for threatened fauna and migratory birds, including the critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot.
Carbon Landscapes is working with Zoos Victoria and Trust for Nature to create a ‘nature haven’ for threatened species that were once common in the north-west of Victoria. Over 800 hectares of Mallee Woodland and Shrubland will become potential habitat for species such as the Mallee Emu-wren, Malleefowl and Western Quoll.
Carbon Landscapes has secured large areas of private forestry plantations across the Victoria’s section of the Great Dividing Range. Additional biodiverse habitat plantings have complimented these plantations to create over 500 hectares of carbon offsets across Victoria
Recognising that some of our fauna, such as the Koala are highly dependent on established private plantations for habitat, Carbon Landscapes is working with the plantation industry to enable these areas transition from being plantations to become crucial Koala habitat.
Carbon Landscapes is partnering with the Odonata Foundation, Nature Glenelg Trust and the Stony Rises Land Management Network to ‘rewild’ over 400 hectares of threatened Stony Rise Woodland. We are working to understand how best to use this amazing habitat to support potential endangered fauna species such as the Spotted-tail Quoll, Koala and Long-nosed Potoroo.
Carbon Landscapes is working with the Odonata Foundation, the Victorian Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Action, and Nature Glenelg Trust to restore over 90 hectares of habitat adjacent to the Gariwerd (Grampians) National Park. Our fenced nature haven will provide a future release site for threatened species into the Park. Potential species include the endangered Long-nosed Potoroo, Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby, Southern Brown Bandicoot and Smoky Mouse.
Volunteer in one of projects! Plant a tree, help enhance habitat, participate in a mammal survey – there are many opportunities how you can help support our projects. We will let you know when we have events planned.
In the spirit of reconciliation Carbon Landscapes acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
