The Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is a multi-species native reforestation project located in Southwest Australia – one of only 35 internationally recognised global biodiversity hotspots. These are regions that have an exceptionally high number of plant and animal species that don’t occur anywhere else and account for 90% of all species on Earth.

The project is established on degraded, semi-arid agricultural land that no longer supported viable farming practices. More than 50 native tree and shrub species endemic to the region are planted and are protected with 100 year carbon rights and carbon covenants registered on the land titles.

This project not only has a positive impact on climate change but also makes a meaningful contribution to a number of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
