Results - Available and Anticipated Credits

 

AVAILABLE CREDITS

 

Available credits are the result of credit projects that have:

 

  • Enhanced/restored and committed to protect high quality greater sage grouse (GRSG) habitat for at least 30 years.  
  • Interest in selling credits to a mitigation buyer and fulfilling the durability requirements of the Conservation Credit System (CCS). 

 

And have worked with partners to: 

 

  • Quantify the habitat function on their project site using the CCS Habitat Quantification Tool (HQT) and verify the credits available for sale.
  • Develop an approved management plan to be implemented upon sale of credits.

 

Credits currently available for sale on the open market are shown in Table 1.

ANTICIPATED CREDITS

 

Projects anticipated to soon have available credits reflect credit projects that have high quality greater sage grouse (GRSG) habitat or plans to enhance/restore the project area to high quality habitat for GRSG as well as interest from the project proponent in selling credits to a mitigation buyer and enrolling in the CCS.  Although habitat measurements and efforts to utilize the HQT are currently underway or have already been completed, final credit estimates are not yet available for these projects.  However, credits associated with these projects may be available as soon as Fall 2017. 

 

Projects anticipated to soon have available credits are shown in Table 2.

CREDIT PROJECT LOCATIONS

 

Figure 1.  The locations of credit projects with available and anticipated credits are shown as well as the Western Assocation of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) zones, biologically significant units (BSUs), and population management units (PMUs). 

 

If you anticipate purchasing credits to offset an anthropogenic disturbance, please review the significance of these boundaries to GRSG populations as well as the Proximity Ratio in the CCS Manual
