Yuin Station - WA HIR Carbon Project

This project is in the Shire of Murchison local government area. This project establishes permanent native forests through assisted regeneration from in-situ seed sources (including rootstock and lignotubers) on land that was cleared of vegetation and where regrowth was suppressed for at least 10 years prior to the project having commenced.
Project ID: yuinHIR
Human-Induced Regeneration

Vegetation Time-lapse

See the time-lapse of Yuin Station HIR Project over the past 6 years. The satellite imagery used has Everclime's NDVI overlay, which shows the change in vegetation over time, with more green signifying higher vegetation index at the site. The project was commissioned in 2020 and begun to produce ACCU's in 2023.
Vegetation Time-lapse


Yuin Station was Registered as a carbon project with the Clean Energy Regulator in 2020. The carbon project has facilitated new practices for sheep management by modifying the extent and timing of grazing. This has provided the opportunity for the regeneration of shrubs and trees to form a forest.

Past management highlights:
> Size of Property: 130,000 hectares (330,000 acres)
> Size of Carbon Project: 61,036 hectares
> Pioneers in landscape hydration works which have restored hardpan floodplains.
> First station in the region to complete wild dog & feral-proof boundary fencing.

Project Highlights

The map below shows the carbon store areas in yellow.

New management for carbon:
> Reduction in sheep numbers
> Rotational grazing – resting regenerating areas for carbon growth
> New fencing and new water points to reduce grazing pressure in sensitive areas
Project Highlights


Human-Induced Regeneration (HIR). HIR project stores carbon in regenerated native forest. This generates Australian carbon credits units (carbon credits) in return for reducing the level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Allowing native forests to regenerate has several benefits:
Farm benefits: Provides shelter for livestock and reduces soil erosion and salinity
Ecosystem health: Improved water quality through reduced pesticide and fertiliser runoff
Conserve biodiversity: Native forests provide habitat for species such as insects, birds and reptiles

United Nations: Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 interconnected goals established by the United Nations in 2015. The SDGs provide a comprehensive framework for addressing the world's most pressing economic, social, and environmental challenges.

Global impact groups play a crucial role in supporting the SDGs by creating mechanisms to mobilise resources, collaborate with stakeholders, and drive collective action toward achieving the goals. These groups have the capacity to leverage their expertise and resources to make a significant positive impact.
