At al.ive body we are committed to contributing to the environment that inspires our products. That's why we have taken steps to protect 4,350㎡ of vulnerable habitat in Alleena, located in the heart of the New South Wales' Riverina and on Wiradjuri country.
Our collaboration with Wilderlands is a world-first initiative that empowers us to obtain voluntary biodiversity units. This means that individual one square meter plots of land will be permanently protected and managed for 20 years within high ecological value projects.
The Alleena landscape is home to many species of birds that depend on intact woodland ecosystems for foraging and nesting. Unfortunately, many of these birds are now found almost exclusively in small, scattered remnants of habitat on private land, within State Forests or Nature Reserves. By protecting this vulnerable habitat, we are taking a significant step forward in preserving Australia's valuable biodiversity.
The restoration of previously cleared land commenced in 2013 with the direct seeding of almost 850ha with local tree and shrub species. This initiative is essential because it will help address the decline of these woodland birds and provide a habitat for them to thrive. It's a privilege to be a part of this initiative and to make a positive impact on the environment.
The decline of woodland birds like the Dusky Woodswallow is a concerning issue that demands our attention. These birds depend on intact woodland ecosystems for foraging and nesting, but their habitat is disappearing at an alarming rate. Small, scattered remnants of habitat on private or public land are often the only refuge for these birds. However, even these remnants are unprotected and subject to further clearing and degradation.
We are thrilled to collaborate with Wilderlands to make a positive impact on the environment. Our commitment to preserving natural habitats and biodiversity is a crucial step towards protecting our planet. We hope that this initiative inspires others to take action and contribute towards preserving the world we live in for future generations.
