• WWF has identified priority areas for vegetation protection and restoration in Great Barrier Reef Catchments. Beef producers within those priority areas were invited to participate in a pilot project to examine carbon farming using Human Induced Regeneration with biodiversity co-benefits on grazing land. Three producer families in Central Queensland joined the project and agreed to collaborate to examine carbon and biodiversity opportunities on their properties.

    During the year, our experienced ecologists were engaged by WWF to conduct field assessments on three privately held grazing properties in the catchment to determine their ecological value.

    Working closely with the landowners, we established a baseline of each property’s ecology, and provided recommendations for how land management and conservation techniques could be deployed to improve ecological value.

    Already using sustainable, best management practices on their cattle properties, the landholders are highly motivated to do more to protect and enhance their land’s biodiversity and tap into environmental markets that reward their conservation efforts and outcomes.
