Applied science, economic opportunity and good governance are at the core of Winrock’s strategies to promote the health of the world’s most fragile — and critical — forests. Our work with local governments and rural communities also recognizes the importance of striking the right balance between conservation and economic opportunity.

Wetlands at Oxnard, CA

Carbon Banking on California Wetlands

Project Title: Wetlands Carbon Sequestration Protocol

Healthy wetlands have the potential to store large amounts of carbon. Winrock’s American Carbon Registry (ACR) is developing a methodology that will encourage wetlands restoration in California by allowing those who undertake conservation projects to generate offsets that can be sold on the state’s carbon market.
