Focus Projects

Greenfleet is focused on delivering projects with strong environmental outcomes, along with social and economic co-benefits. 

While all our forestry projects are designed to protect our climate, we also work to deliver additional community benefits, including:

  • biodiversity and endangered species protection;
  • improved land productivity;
  • health and well-being;
  • job creation;
  • community engagement. 

Our projects are funded by individual and corporate supporter donations. 

We work with a wide range of project partners, including federal, state and local government, corporate partners and peer environmental organisations. We actively seek out partnerships with organisations committed to taking practical action on climate change and the environment.

Restoring Noosa, QLD

Supporting reconciliation, restoring Country, and delivering climate action 

Spanning two sites located on Kabi Kabi Country in Queensland, Yurol and Ringtail make up 1,100 hectares of cleared land that Greenfleet is restoring to legally protected native forest as they transition to National Park in the Noosa Hinterland. 

This project is: 

  • Protecting our climate by restoring legally protected native forest  
  • Creating vital koala habitat  
  • Delivering verified social and cultural benefits for Traditional Owners 
  • Replacing monoculture plantation with biodiverse native ecosystem 

Restoring Country for Climate, a GPT nature positive initiative in partnership with Greenfleet and Traditional Owners, brings together climate action, reconciliation, and restoration of critical koala habitat. The GPT Group is Greenfleet’s Principal Partner for this project and with their support we are delivering action for climate and Country. 

Low Glow Project, QLD

Greenfleet is working to protect Australia's endangered sea turtle population through the creation of "low glow" coastal communities.

By revegetating a site called Barolin just out of Bundaberg, Greenfleet is establishing a native forest that will act as a green curtain to shield Loggerhead Turtle hatchlings from artificial light when making their way to the sea. Loggerhead Sea Turtles return to Mon Repos Beach every year to lay their eggs so this project will have long term conservation benefits.

Wurneet Laang Laang, VIC

Greenfleet's forest called Wurneet Laang Laang is locationed on Boon Wurrung Country in Victoria’s South Gippsland. This project highlights our work to restoring protected habitat for koalas and other native wildlife.

First planted in 2016, the forest established well in its first years of growth, and we saw Strzelecki Koalas return within 3 years. Greenfleet owns a number of properties in South Gippsland and in the coming years, Wurneet Laang Laang will become part of a 3.5-kilometre, contiguous stretch of protected koala habitat in the region.

Glendalough, VIC

Glendalough is another project on Boon Wurrung Country in the rolling hills of South Gippsland, Victoria. This project demonstrates how large-scale climate action can co-exist with regenerative agricultural practices.

Of this 240-hectare property, nearly half will be returned to legally protected native forest while other parts are being farmed. The forest restored will play a vital role in extending habitat for South Gippsland’s Strzelecki Koalas, the strongest populations of koalas in Australia. It will also deliver significant climate action over its lifetime, conserve biodiversity and reduce erosion in the area.

Strzelecki Nature Link

Located on Boon Wurrung Country, the Strzelecki Nature Link is made up of four Greenfleet owned properties in South Gippsland. Once restored, it will form a 3.5-kilometer stretch of contiguous koala habitat. By planting locally native tree species, the establishment of the Strzelecki Nature Link will deliver climate action by removing carbon and ensure safe passage for wildlife.

South Gippsland is home to some of the strongest koala populations in Australia. By restoring protected native forests in this region, Greenfleet is creating and extending habitat for these iconic animals.

Our Upcoming Projects

Each year, Greenfleet takes climate action by restoring legally protected native forests and revegetating a variety of ecosystems. A selection of our upcoming revegetation projects are outlined here.
