The World Economic Forum has warned that biodiversity loss is among the top three threats humanity will face.
Similarly, the United Nations have stated that we must protect 30% of nature by 2030 or face dire consequences as a species.
Never before has there been a simple solution, but Wilderlands provides a new way.
We work with landholders of properties that have high conservation value following assessment by accredited ecologists as part of the government conservation plans in states across Australia.
These assessments quantify the ecological units that can be protected and develop a detailed management plan to ensure the protection of the biodiversity on these properties which may include threatened species habitat and ecological communities.
The landholder enters into an agreement (covenant) with a statutory authority to conserve and protect this land in-perpetuity. This contract is recorded on the land title and the covenant permanently controls land use and management.
The site and its ecological (biological) units are then recorded on independently managed registers. This process replicates the well established carbon market and ensures integrity and transparency of impact and ownership of units.
Wilderlands provides you with the opportunity to purchase these geotagged units and help protect Australia’s biodiversity in perpetuity, watching as nature flourishes thanks to your support.
Wilderlands provides individuals and organisations with the ability to protect Australia’s biodiversity through the purchase of Biological Diversity Units which each represent 1sqm of land protected in-perpetuity.
The platform offers a practical solution to a complex problem and is partnering with landholders to provide a marketplace where those individuals seeking to make protecting the planet a priority can engage with projects having impact and track their progress over time through geo-tagged units and regular reporting on the conservation work happening at each location.
The platform provides users with the opportunity to customise their impact, ranging from the landscapes and locations they wish to support through to their preference for supporting with options including subscription or one-off contribution.
Wilderlands is a response to the need for greater investment in nature, aiming to develop a solution that is both accessible and scalable by aligning the interests of landowners, conservationists, consumers, and large corporates making protecting the planet possible.
A world where people value earth’s natural ecosystems and work together to nurture biodiversity so that future generations can continue to be enriched, enlightened and inspired by Nature.
We know what is needed and if we act now there is still time to save the natural world for future generations.
The natural world is vital and we have a responsibility to protect it for ourselves, future generations and all life on Earth.
We can have a long-lasting, positive impact on the future if we find a balance between people, agriculture and conservation.
To build a better future we need to connect and engage with organisations and individuals who are eager for change.
There is so much to learn from the natural world if we give it a chance to thrive.
We acknowledge and respect the traditional custodians, and their stewardship of the land and waters on which we work. We seek to partner with them in the delivery of quality, biodiversity based projects.
