Flooding Wetlands Could Be the Next Big Carbon Capture Hack

„The Nywaigi people in Australia have discovered a way to sequester carbon, boost coastal biodiversity, and create jobs. […] In addition to boosting ecotourism, the revitalized wetlands are providing a unique opportunity for the development of a carbon credit business. Restoring Mungalla’s native landscape sequesters carbon dioxide both through reforestation on land and in the soils and sediments of the wetlands and mangroves. That sequestered carbon can be accounted for and then traded on the carbon markets as credits to offset emissions elsewhere.“
