EcoAustralia™ is made possible through partnerships with the following organisations:
Cassinia Environmental is a leader in landscape restoration and biodiversity protection, delivering projects that restore and protect Australia's natural systems. With a focus on the reconnection of fragmented landscapes through biodiversity-based revegetation projects, Cassinia delivers conservation and land management that is both productive and ecologically resilient. Together with South Pole, Cassinia is working to make biodiversity-based conservation accessible to a voluntary market, for contributions that go above and beyond offsetting vegetation removal and instead deliver tangible and additional benefits to native land conservation.
Trust For Nature, a not-for-profit organisation, is one of Australia's oldest conservation organisations, working to protect and secure habitat in Victoria where wildlife and native plants can thrive. The organisation administers on-title agreements, known as conservation covenants – a legally binding way for landowners to conserve natural habitat on their sites in perpetuity. Over the last 45 years, Trust For Nature have permanently secured over 100,000 hectares of private land in places that are home to some of Australia's rarest species. Our Victorian EcoAustralia™ conservation project sites are protected in perpetuity using Trust For Nature conservation covenants.
Native Vegetation Council is an independent body established by the South Australian Native Vegetation Act 1991. The Council is appointed by the Minister for Environment and Water to monitor the overall condition of native vegetation in South Australia and make decisions on a wide range of vegetation-related matters. The Native Vegetation Council also makes recommendations for the protection of sites to Management Plan conditions. Sites are protected in perpetuity with a Management Agreement on title.
Vegetation Link is an independent third party who specialise in transactions of vegetation offsets. For EcoAustralia™, Vegetation Link functions to manage the conversion of the state-based biodiversity units to South Pole's standardised ABUs on an internal registry.
