Biodiversity Credit Exchange
This program was available in 2022 for land managers in two areas (see maps below) of Eyre Peninsula to diversify their income and improve biodiversity with the Biodiversity Credit Exchange (BCE) opening up to the region.
This program was delivered by the Department for Environment and Water (DEW) and the Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board on behalf of the Native Vegetation Council (NVC).
Under this program, eligible land managers were able to access funding to manage and protect areas of native vegetation on their land to generate biodiversity credits, with a focus on sites of high conservation value.
See a case study of a SEB offset from Coulta on lower Eyre Peninsula. In this case study, the process is slightly more involved than for those who took up the opportunity to be involved in the BCE.
