Public presentation - “The Thiaki Rainforest Restoration Project” by Drs. Penny van Oosterzee and Noel Preece.

The Thiaki Rainforest Restoration Project (TRRP) on the Atherton Tablelands trades in carbon and cattle. The aim of TRRP is to encourage landscape scale restoration and this talk will use real costs of farm-level restoration and returns from cattle to show under what circumstances and at what price it becomes viable to trade in carbon, cattle or both.

This is one of the few studies of its kind in Australia and the use of real costs provides some useful insights. Noel Preece will provide an overview of the TRRP and Penny van Oosteree will present the cost effective scenarios. TKMG hopes that you will be able to attend what promises to be a very interesting, informative and thought-provoking presentation.
