Koala friendly carbon farming

WWF-Australia has partnered with Climate Friendly in a new environmental plantings initiative to support landholders to establish koala-friendly carbon farming projects.
Koala Friendly carbon farming can help to restore thousands of hectares of koala habitat, increasing biodiversity and helping to reverse the decline of koalas and other threatened species.
This is an exciting project which enables a landholder to potentially receive an income from growing trees.
The main requirement is land that is suitable for planting koala habitat, has a reasonable carbon yield and is at least 25 ha.
The WWF is providing the trees, labour and ongoing maintenance for three years and monitoring.
