PROJECT INFORMATION

Alleena

Located in the heart of the New South Wales’ Riverina, this four and a half thousand acre landscape is addressing the decline of the suite of birds dependent on intact woodland ecosystems for foraging and nesting. These once common woodland birds, such as the Dusky Woodswallow Artamus cyanopterus cyanopterus, are now found almost exclusively in small, scattered remnants of habitat on private land, within State Forests or Nature Reserves.

Typical of many such farms within the region, the property was historically utilized for cropping and sheep grazing. The restoration of previously cleared land commenced in 2013 with the direct seeding of almost 850ha with local tree and shrub species.

Although Dusky Woodswallow and other threatened species also utilize whatever little habitat remains on private or public land, such remnants are unprotected and subject to further clearing and degradation. Consequently, conservation management strategies designed to halt the decline of woodland birds towards extinction include actions such as conserving remnant habitat on private land (preferably through in-perpetuity covenants), restoring degraded sites, preserving or establishing connectivity across the landscape, and expanding habitat through revegetation activities.

Developer

Wilderlands have developed one of the world's first voluntary biodiversity credits and launched a platform to make it easy for anyone to start protecting nature today. The Biological Diversity Unit (BDU) represents a 1sqm plot of permanently-protected and actively managed land in high ecological value projects across Australia.

Frequently asked questions.

What are biodiversity credits?

Biodiversity credits represent a standardized unit of positive biodiversity outcomes. They provide a tangible measure of the positive impact a company can make on nature through biodiversity conservation and restoration.

Are these for offsetting?

No, "voluntary biodiversity credits" are distinct from biodiversity offsets. While offsetting is a regulated practice, voluntary biodiversity credits focus on achieving nature-positive impacts beyond mere compensation. They offer an immediate way to enhance a company's impact profile and contribute positively to stakeholders. Biodiversity is highly complex and local, cannot be simply compensated. Therefore to stop and reverse nature loss urgently, companies need to take nature-positive immediate action.

Can the projects also contribute to climate action?

Absolutely. Although biodiversity credits usually don't directly quantify CO2 equivalent units, the restoration and conservation efforts they support act as natural safeguards against climate change. These projects provide dual benefits by positively influencing both nature and climate.

How can my company benefit?

Your company can benefit by demonstrating a commitment to nature-positive actions, enhancing its sustainability profile, and fostering positive stakeholder relationships. Biodiversity credits also offer a practical way to better align your business with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals. Integrating nature-positive impact in your business opens the door for product and service innovation, higher employee engagement, and help your business grow roots into the future of sustainable economy.
