Linking Journalism with the Web of Life
The carbon market has been big news over the last few years, while the equally important issue of conserving biodiversity through similar methods has languished in obscurity.
While SpeciesBanking.com was initially focused on the North American conservation banking sector, it is now expanding its coverage to include biodiversity compensation mechanisms around the world, following last year’s publication of State of Biodiversity Markets: Offset and Compensation Programs Worldwide, which documented $2 billion in performance-based financing for habitat preservation. With this expanded scope, speciesbanking.com will serve as a clearinghouse of biodiversity compensation information covering everything from fish habitat banks in Canada to policy developments on biodiversity offsets in Mongolia and everyplace in between.
SpeciesBanking.com will be debuted in an online live webinar launch later this month, details to be posted shortly on www.speciesbanking.com.
