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!

Happy World Wetlands Day 2016! Wetlands are a critical part of our natural environment, and we're proud to have helped restore & protect a number of wetlands through our reforestation projects.

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.

A binding agreement to minimise carbon emissions to below two degrees Celsius ushers in a new era. And with this new climate pact in place, Australia will need to ramp up its efforts to reduce emissions, says +Greenfleet's  Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Wescott.

Wescott, who was in Paris to meet with Australian political leaders during the COP21 climate summit, says many untold stories of climate action are already found around Australia.

Making your mark is about doing something that is bigger than yourself. Disney have been planting trees and making a mark with +Greenfleet for 18 years.

To celebrate the release of +Disney Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, in cinemas Boxing day, Disney will engage us to plant 1 of 2000 on your behalf for every handprint uploaded to Instagram tagging @DisneyAUNZ and ‪#‎MakeYourMark‬.. Tell us how you have made your mark on the world around you!

+Greenfleet's native forest at Devilbend Reservoir, south east of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula, is looking just glorious today.

Our forester Eoghan reports that the trees are making great progress. This site has been turned into a Natural Features Reserve and revegetation has extended habitat for native animals. Great news!

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.

Great to see The Diggers Club's latest Summer catalogue featuring +Greenfleet's  'offset your delivery' option, for only 50 cents!

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

If your organisation is interested in giving back to the environment and taking real climate action, please email: greta.korthaus@greenfleet.com.au to find out more.

+Greenfleet  is reforesting this site owned by Peter and Bill Wood on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria next year.

+Greenfleet 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!

COP21 UPDATE: Wayne Wescott, +Greenfleet 's CEO has reported that there has been a promising start to COP21 in Paris.

Wayne has been involved in constructive discussions with Australian politicians and a range of other delegates.There is certainly a strong appetite for collaborative action.

Greenfleet's model is a unique and positive contribution to climate change action. We continue to focus on practical hope and revegatating our native forests is a pro-active strategy to mitigate climate change.

Wayne will be representing Greenfleet in discussions on topics such as: blue carbon, the role of cities in climate change action, creating ecosystems, land use, forestry and natural energy. ‪

Greenfleet's native forest at Devilbend Reservoir. This site is located south east of Melbourne on the Mornington Peninsula.

Growth rates are exceptional and many native animals have been spotted in the revegetated native forest.

Examples of species planted here include: Blackwood, Peppermint, Wattle, Sheoak, Manna gum, Tea Tree and Paperbark.

Story
Tagline
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
