- Acres of habitat: 14,000
- Habitat quality score: 30%
Your participation supports wildlife that call forests home, such as the Canada lynx. Lynx occur almost exclusively in boreal forests where their main prey, the snowshoe hare, is abundant.
Historically, Canada lynx ranged across much of the northern United States. Today, populations are present in Maine, Minnesota, Montana, Washington, and Colorado. While trapping was responsible for the species’ historical decline, today climate change and habitat destruction represent its greatest threats.
By protecting forestland within the lynx’s core range, NCX is helping to maintain and expand crucial habitat for this mysterious and beautiful animal.
The McDaniel Family
- Location of property: Mississippi
- Acres in NCX: 1,280
The McDaniel family has been in the forestry business since the 1970s.They decided to enroll with NCX for two reasons: to team up with net-zero leaders, and to better preserve the wooded sections of their property.
Their forest provides a refuge from the hassles of everyday life. Via harvest deferral, our exchange also allows them to preserve wildlife habitat for their fellow creatures of the forest, including white-tailed deer.
- Tons of carbon offsets sold: 35,808
- Private foresters with < 400 acres: 50%
Alabama is home to long leaf pine, tulip poplar, and bald cypress trees—as well as foresters eager to team up with net-zero leaders.
For this fulfillment, NCX inked agreements with three timber investment management organizations, two dozen private landowners, and one municipal forester. Landowners from ten states joined NCX for our inaugural fulfillment cycle. The harvest deferrals by landowners and foresters in AL, constitute more than 25% of the carbon offsets secured.
