HIR 1, Urisino is the earliest Human Induced Regeneration project in Australia initiated in 2007.

 

They thought we were crazy ! Carbon footprint? What's that?

Remember those days?  It took 10 long years before any recognition; before everyone jumped on the bandwagon.

So we believe they are in a category of their own. Thats why we call our credits HIR 1 Urisino credits. We were the first.

But wait, there's more.

HIR 1 ACCUs are de-risked:

· 45,000 ha ACTIVE regeneration
· Forest Canopy Cover Check Completed
· Forest Regeneration Check Completed 
· Permanence Management Plan Enacted 

Urisino HIR 1

Some people have questioned the validity of some ACCUs lately, believing they cannot deliver the forest cover within the time period.

If you are concerned about this then insist on Urisino HIR 1 credits — remember. the ones that have been de-risked and proven genuine.

Regeneration is achieved by preventing overgrazing by sheep, cattle, feral horses (brumbies) and goats. By reducing the number of cattle from a high of 10,000 to only a few hundred and humanely relocating the goats and horses to farms via mustering and trapping, the land is able to regenerate naturally. The native flora and fauna such as the mulga tree, endangered birds and snakes, and honey bees that gather around the Paroo river are then free to thrive again.

Stories documenting our progress

Pasture weed diet only

Out goats are fed 100% pasture weeds and are only supplemented with hay in a few weeks of summer.

No antibiotics or grain is added.

We believe our goats represent the most ethical raising of animals in their native environment that is possible.

Third generation cross

It has taken us five years to get this little kid.

He is the third cross of the best attributes of an outback feral goat and a domesticated boar goat. Note the heavier front body type and better proportions compared to the skinnier but hardy outback goats
