‘Rivers of Carbon’ will work in partnership with landholders, NRM Regional Bodies and other organisations in the New South Wales Southern Tablelands region to link remnant vegetation and previously rehabilitated sites to form intact riparian corridors. The project will also extend riparian corridors into the wider terrestrial landscape to facilitate species movement in the face of climate change, as well as leveraging biodiverse Carbon Farming Initiatives in these highly productive areas. Science and local knowledge will be used to identify priority areas for on-ground works, and will focus on important threatened species habitat.
The project is funded through the Australian Government’s Clean Energy Future Biodiversity Fund and is a collaboration between the Australian River Restoration Centre, Greening Australia Capital Region, Lachlan CMA, Murrumbidgee CMA and local landholders.
