Myamyn Conservation Project

Enhancing biodiversity and permanently protecting Victoria's ancient forests

The Annya State Forest in south-western Victoria is an area of high ecological value, containing numerous vulnerable and endangered plant and animal communities. The forest is characterised by messmate stringybark trees, with a diverse understorey growing on fertile soils. In 1997 sections of the forest were illegally cleared and planted with Tasmanian blue gum, an invasive eucalyptus species. This project seeks to restore the site and protect it in perpetuity from land clearing.

Sustainable Development Goals

Clean Water and Sanitation

4 hectares of wetlands

protected, providing habitat for threatened frog, bird and bat species

Climate Action

Gold Standard carbon credits

stapled to each government accredited Australian Biodiversity Unit purchased from the Myamyn project, meeting stringent standards for NCOS eligibility

Life on land

200 hectares of forests

protected and restored, including 22 ha that have been replanted with native vegetation

Partnerships for the goals

Australia-first partnership

enabling voluntary purchases of government-accredited Australian Biodiversity Units (normally reserved only for offsetting vegetation removal)

The Solution

Australian Biodiversity Credits purchased from Cassinia. Those credits are used as part of our stapled offer to clients, where for each carbon credit sold, we add a biodiversity unit, representing 1.5m2 of permanently protected Australian Forest

The Impact

The Myamyn project has rehabilitated over 20 hectares of cleared lands, protecting a total of 200 hectares against further clearing and enhancing habitat by controlling weeds and pest animals like cats and foxes. In doing so, habitat for a range of vulnerable and endangered native species is protected and enhanced including the southern brown bandicoot, powerful owl and long-nosed potoroo.
