Our current stock of biodiversity credits—one credit equals one hectare of biodiversity hotspot protected for two months by a local smallfarmer or indigenous group—is from a 18,500 ha collective of >300 indigenous smallfarmers and 2 indigenous groups in the Tropical Andean biodiversity hotspot. Observations of indicators species are tracked in iNaturalist for >1 year and all farmers have a 30-year conservation contract for shared revenue from sales. We have >10 indigenous groups in 9 countries in our pipeline in either biodiversity hotspots or IUCN-threatened ecosystems and anticipate providing 178M credits to the global conservation market in the next 5 years. We anticipate certification of our biodiversity credits in October 2023 and are currently accepting letters of intent or presales.
