Free Seminar - Environmental offsets and making money from BioBanking


1 Sep 2016 - 8:00am to 9:30am

Thursday 1 September at Goulburn Workers

You are invited to join farmers, landholders, businesses and land managers from private and public sector organisations at a free seminar in Goulburn on Thursday 1 September 2016 to find out how environmental offsetting can generate an  income.
Experts from Niche Environment and Heritage will explain environmental offsetting, with case studies and discussion of the current legislation and State and Commonwealth policy framework. There will also be the opportunity to ask questions about the opportunities specific to your property.

Dr Rhidian Harrington, director of Niche Environment and Heritage is an ecologist and accredited BioBanking assessor.  At the seminar he will explain how
  • Recent government policy changes around offsetting mean there is now a market for biodiversity "credits" under the NSW BioBanking Scheme
  • Many private farming properties contain land that has little agricultural value but contain biodiversity values that can now generate an income
  • A farming property can retain its ownership and agricultural operations and generate substantial economic returns from the sale of biodiversity offset credits
Who should attend?
This seminar is open to landowners and their legal and financial advisors, anyone who is involved in land development or management (private and public sector), and those with an interest in innovative ways to generate additional income from the land.  Please feel free to pass on this email to any colleagues or contacts you have who may be interested in attending.
