Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund (now Carbon Positive Australia) teamed up with Threshold Environmental to engage conservation-minded land owners and active land managers Bill and Jane Thompson to replant 100 ha of their Yarrahweyah Falls farm to create a “Biodiverse Carbon Sink” while also contributing to the Gondwana Link vision. Threshold Environmental designed, planned and managed the implementation of the 2013 ecological restoration program at Yarraweyah Falls.

The site captures carbon through the establishment and growth of native trees and shrubs across four broad ecosystems: Upland Yate, Mixed Rich Mallee, Granitic Mallee, and Duplex Mixed Mallee.

Over 150 local plant species were seeded and planted to support and enhance the conservation of biodiversity at the site. Bill and Jane Thompson have continued to enhance the site with additional species every year.
