Ravensthorpe Biodiverse Carbon Sink

This Ravensthorpe property ‘Cordingup’ was purchased by conservation owners Keith and Christine Rowe 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 Charitable Fund provided the funding for undertaking the ecological restoration of a portion of this land 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.
