Moroco East is a 10,500-acre Merino Sheep property on a Delta floodplain of Australia’s
major inland river, The River Murray. The owner has requested that the principles of NSF,
with a design by Peter Andrews AOM, be the cornerstone of the project to be carried out by practitioners closely connected to ICER.
This project has the capacity to fund the work of ICER, which will, also at the request of the
owner, be able to record and collect the rigorous data relevant to the entire project. This will form the basis of a full scientific evaluation from method to outcomes.
ICER will work in conjunction with collaborative universities to provide internships to capture and evaluate the predetermined critical performance indicators.
We believe that as a project using these ecosystem restoration principles, we have the best
potential to set an industry benchmark for carbon sequestration, and so establish a pathway for other landowners.
This project will take advantage of the current carbon trading arrangement established
through the Federal Government’s Clean Energy Regulator with the estimated expectation
that the entire restoration process could be funded by this scheme. Such scientific
validation will create a huge incentive for other properties to adopt ecosystem restoration
methods and thereby accelerate the entire country’s restoration objectives.
