Tree Planting - Australia

Objectives

The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is an ecological rejuvenation initiative situated in Southwest Australia, a recognized global biodiversity hotspot. Born out of the need to address the challenges of nonviable farming on degraded semi-arid lands, this project is not just about planting trees; it's about reviving an ecosystem. By reintroducing native trees and shrubs, it aims to reverse decades of habitat loss, soil degradation, and carbon emission, ensuring a greener future for the region.

Beyond just environmental revival, the project weaves a social fabric by offering local Indigenous communities employment opportunities, supporting over 80 local businesses, and fostering a holistic community benefit system. With its commitment sealed by Carbon Right and Carbon Covenants for a century, the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor stands as a testament to sustainable restoration. Previously, it was recognized as the "Auscarbon Biodiversity Project."
