In 2007, Greenfleet teamed up with Ipswich City Council to transform grazing paddocks along Purga Creek into native bushland for the community to enjoy. We planted 90,000 native trees which turned the area into a fauna and flora sanctuary.

One of them is Baxters Wetland Reserve (in Wonthaggi, Vic), which we revegetated between 2005 and 2011 with 33,000 native trees and shrubs (like Coastal Wattles, Woolly Tea Trees & Coastal Manna Gums). Nowadays the Reserve is thriving. The forest is protecting the lake & marshes, acting as a carbon sink and providing excellent habitat for the bird population. If you're a keen bird-watcher, it's a great place to visit with bird hides dotting around the park.

The Diggers Club have been supporting since 2007, planting more than 1,600 trees as a result.

aims to increase the biodiversity of the region and improve habitat and wildlife corridors for local koalas and other native animals. We are very excited to be restoring Australia's most iconic road!

This revegetation project is absolutely sensational! Located within the Greater Bendigo National Park, the State Park is regarded as one of the most important conservation areas in Victoria. Of the 360 different plant species have been recorded in the park, 19 are listed as rare or threatened in Victoria. Over 170 different species of bird are recorded within the park and five of them are listed as rare or threatened along with four species of mammal and reptile.
Between 2007 and 2011, we worked with Parks Victoria to revegetate this bare patch. After a rough start, the forest is now growing well and is extending wildlife habitat as well as preserving the rare flora and fauna species from the region.
This is another stunning example of the impact our supporters' #carbonoffset donations have on the ground. THIS, right there, is what we call real and tangible climate action. So spread the word and share this post so that more and more Australians join us to offset their carbon emissions and restore our landscape: www.greenfleet.com.au/offset
Back in 2008, we planted trees on this piece of land to transform a former grazing farm into the beautiful wetland reserve it is today near Wyong, NSW.
This project is of particular significance for #biodiversity conservation as many vegetation communities that exist on this site are identified as Endangered Ecological Communities under the Threatened Species Conservation (TSC) Act (1995). The 4,000 native trees we planted are helping to restore, protect and conserve these ecosystems; they're also removing carbon pollution from the air and improving water quality in the wetlands, which acts as a storage and filter basin for urban stormwater prior to entering Tuggerah Lake.

In 2010, Greenfleet assisted Parks Victoria with a bushfire recovery project in Kinglake National Park following the devastating bushfires in 2009. This native reforestation project aimed at creating a habitat link (or corridor) between Kinglake National and Warrandyte State Park to help threatened species, such as the Brush Tailed Phascogale, which were affected by the fires to travel back into the National Park.

Greenfleet is Australia's most respected source of biodiverse carbon offsets.
As an environmental not-for-profit organisation, our mission is to protect our climate by restoring our forests. We plant Australian native forests to offset carbon emissions on behalf of thousands of individuals, businesses, NGOs, councils and universities.
Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted over 8.5 million native trees in more than 400 biodiverse forests around Australia.
Our philosophy for tackling climate change involves three key phases:
- Avoid creating emissions wherever possible
- Reduce the rate at which you do create emissions
- Offset any emissions created by recapturing CO2 from the atmosphere
