Generate credits with a biodiversity stewardship agreement

A Biodiversity Stewardship Agreement helps conserve habitat for native species and ecosystems and generates biodiversity credits that can be sold to fund management of weeds, pests, fire, and ecological restoration.

A Biodiversity Stewardship Agreement (BSA) is an agreement registered on title. The biodiversity credits generated through a BSA can be sold directly to developers that need to offset impacts, government or to other buyers wanting to secure conservation. 

Credits can also be sold to the Biodiversity Credits Supply Fund or the Biodiversity Conservation Trust. 

Use the links below for information about the stages of developing a BSA.
