What Makes Mallard Farms Special?

Our team has worked to provide significant habitat and biological productivity benefits for several important protected fish species. Our conservation area is also adjacent to one of the most important areas for young Salmonids, Delta, and Longfin Smelt.

What Is A Conversation Bank and How Does it Work?

A conservation bank is a permanently protected area of land or aquatic habitat that protects at-risk animals and habitats. Conservation banks exist in order to offset adverse impacts to land and/or aquatic habitat similar to the conservation bank’s protected habitat.

Along with conserving habitat important to protected species, conservation banks sell credits to developers and public agencies whose activity will cause unavoidable alterations to similar habitat within the Bank’s service area approved by the environmental regulatory agencies. In order to mitigate such impacts, the developer or public agency purchases credits from a conservation bank such as Mallard Farms. Through an agreement with the environmental regulatory agencies, a portion of this money is used to create an endowment to insure that the conservation bank is protected in perpetuity.

The Land We Conserve

The more than 650 + acres that we protect and restore is located in the Greater Bay Area  - where fresh and saltwater meet to form high-quality, tidal marsh - our conservation site is perfectly positioned to provide an ideal place for a variety of vulnerable fish to thrive.

Our Location

Strategically located at the southern edge of the Suisun Marsh, Mallard Farms Conservation Bank is in a prime position to help at-risk fish thrive as well as lesser-known organisms that form the basis the food web in this biologically important part of the Delta. Adjacent to Suisun March -the largest brackish water marsh on the West Coast- Mallard Farms is also able to play a major role in preventing flooding, reducing erosion, and storing carbon.
