Mount Sandy Conservation promotes partnerships for conservation between Traditional Landowners and non-Indigenous Australians through vital conservation work
The Coorong National Park and Lakes Alexandrina and Albert are the meeting point where the Murray Australia‘s largest river, with a catchment of over one million square kilometers feeds into the Southern Ocean. Part of South Australia’s Limestone Coast, this region features some of the country’s most breathtaking landscapes. However, land surrounding these national treasures has been largely cleared for agriculture. The carbon credits generated are certified by Gold Standard and the project is certified by EcoAustralia.
EcoAustralia is a stapled product that blends carbon credits with biodiversity protection, including in the the Mount Sandy Conservation. Each EcoAustralia credit consists of one Australian Biodiversity Unit, equal to 1.5m2 of government-accredited, permanently protected Australian vegetation, and 1 tCO2e of avoided emissions from a Gold Standard certified project.
