CLIMATE FRIENDLY PARTNERS TO PILOT NEW APPROACH TO CARBON FARMING

A proposal by Bush Heritage Australia, the CSIRO and Climate Friendly to pilot a Landscape Management approach to carbon farming has secured $735,000 in funding under the QLD Government’s Land Restoration Fund.

The project aims to investigate how a range of active land management techniques, such as rotational grazing and ecological thinning of vegetation, can contribute to carbon sequestration, and unlock measurable environmental, social and economic benefits for landholders and rural communities.
