An innovative partnership between farmers, scientists, and government agencies in the New South Wales Murray catchment is seeing wetlands rehabilitated to increase their capacity to store carbon. The ﬁrst stage of the ‘Murray Wetland Carbon Storage’ project, involves rehabilitating 400 hectares of wetlands with a target of 2000 hectares by June 2013/14. The project is an initiative of Murray Local Land Services and the Murray Darling Wetlands Working Group Ltd, funded through the Australian Government. It has been enthusiastically embraced by landholders, both public and private, in the sheep–wheat belt of the eastern Riverina and south-west slopes of New South Wales.
