Ravensthorpe Biodiverse Carbon Sink

Ravensthorpe_SeededThis property in Ravensthorpe was purchased by the current owners with a clear intention to restore it to its former glory. The farm is surrounded by unique natural vegetation and located close to the Fitzgerald River National Park. Carbon Neutral partnered with the owners to fund the ecological restoration of this farm as part of their carbon offset programme.

Threshold Environmental implemented the project across 35.12 ha in 2010. This included direct-seeding more than 40 native plant species in five different ecosystems. Aside from carbon sequestration, the restoration of the site provides other ecological benefits, such as prevention of soil erosion and salinisation of the catchment system, and provision of a wildlife corridor.
