This was then and this is now!

In 2007, we joined forces with Parks Victoria to revegetate the missing piece of the puzzle in the Greater Bendigo National Park, Victoria. As you can see, nine years later, our forest is well and truly achieving this goal!

Greenfleet forester Eoghan was on site to check on the progress of this project last week and said that "the trees are growing exceptionally well. I saw plenty of wildlife, including birds, wallabies and kangaroos. Seeing these animals utilising the site for food and shelter is an excellent sign!"

The mix of species planted included the Kamarooka Mallee, a rare type of eucalyptus, endemic to Victoria and listed as threatened on the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988.

Visit www.greenfleet.com.au/Ourforests/PlantingSites/Kamarooka to find out more about this native reforestation project and how you can get involved to help plant more forests like this one.

We're stoked to announce the launch of #RememberTheReef - an amazing campaign by our longest supporter, Disney Australia & New Zealand​, inspiring Australians to take action to protect the beautiful Great Barrier Reef.

We're excited to partner with Disney to help protect one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Click here to find out more and donate to make a difference too!

This before and after photo collage from pics taken 8 years apart in our forest at Humes Crossing, NSW speaks for itself... This Greenfleet native revegetation project has had a tremendous positive impact on the environment.

Not only the forest is returning the landscape back to its natural state, it also boasts a lot of other benefits: the trees remove carbon from the atmosphere and provide habitat for wildlife while the forest protects Australian biodiversity and prevents soil erosion.

This is the perfect demonstration of what can be achieved thanks to the carbon offset donations we receive from our supporters. If you want to learn more and get involved visit www.greenfleet.org.au

These before and after satellite images demonstrate the striking impact our reforestation work has in the Kamarooka State Park, Victoria.

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

Remember the native forest we seeded in June last year near Kara Kara National Park, Victoria? In just three months, we spotted the first germination. So special to witness a forest in the making!

Check out these before and after photos.

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.

Did you know? We've crossed the Tasman and are now revegetating land in New Zealand too!
One of our projects takes place in the beautiful Te Muri, a property wedged between two Regional Parks, north of Auckland and in need of some Greenfleet TLC.
We're privileged to partner with Auckland City to restore the land at Te Muri. In 2016, we've already revegetated 3.5 hectares with native seedlings and more tree planting is planned in the park for 2017.

This year we've partnered with Queensland Trust for Nature to re-build a home for koalas in south-east Queensland. We’re excited to join forces to help protect the koalas, which are dwindling in numbers.

How is your day looking up?
This Spotted Gum was planted in 2002 in one of our ‪#‎GreenfleetForests‬ in Newcastle, NSW, to restore native bush and offset carbon emissions.

This Honey bee is busy collecting pollen of a Swamp Tea Tree's flowers in one of our ‪#‎GreenfleetForests‬.

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.

This is what native #reforestation looks like. And this is what our supporters' donations achieve on the ground: the restoration of healthy, biodiverse #forests.

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.

Story

Greenfleet is a not-for-profit organisation connecting people with real climate action.
Introduction
Greenfleet exists to make a difference, not a profit

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:

  1. Avoid creating emissions wherever possible
  2. Reduce the rate at which you do create emissions
  3. Offset any emissions created by recapturing CO2 from the atmosphere
