Species banking goes global!

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Dont’ worry! I don’t mean that you can now trade species like you would apples and oranges.

As well as an up-and-coming approach (maybe) to limiting our impacts on wild plants and animals, Species Banking is also a dedicated website managed by Forest Trends that aims to be the entry point for all those interested in the issue or that actually need to sell or buy species credits.

This month, the website extended its focus beyond US Conservation Banking. It went global! You can now find a list of biodiversity offset programs across the globe. Although the list is still incomplete, it contains a wealth of information.

Enjoy it!
