Peniup

Peniup is a former farming property in Western Australia where over 750 hectares of biodiverse native vegetation have been restored, between 2008 and 2015. The property is located within the internationally-recognised Southwest Australian biodiversity hotspot.

More than 65,000 ACCUs have been issued from this planting so far (EOP101147). Credits produced were initially sold into the Emissions Reduction Fund, but are now sold into the voluntary market. Besides the carbon plantings, the site includes areas of Australian native sandalwood, demonstrating the potential for integrating farm forestry objectives with biodiverse revegetation.

The diverse plantings at Peniup contribute a vital piece of landscape-scale habitat towards the goal of connecting the Stirling Range and Fitzgerald River national parks, within the Gondwana Link pathway. Threatened species supported through this habitat creation include Malleefowl and Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo. Bird surveys have confirmed the restoration at Peniup is supporting a diversity of species that would be found in comparable undisturbed bushland, showing the important co-benefit of wildlife habitat provision from environmental planting method projects.
