What is SpeciesBanking.com?

Speciesbanking.com is a global information clearinghouse for a segment of biodiversity markets focusing on biodiversity offsetting, compensation and banking*. Until now, there has been no centralized information resource to serve researchers, policy makers, buyers, sellers, and other market participants. This site aims to provide a succinct answer to the question "What is happening in biodiversity offset and compensation programs around the world?" SpeciesBanking.com provides information at two levels: at the Program level and at the level of individual biodiversity banks.
