The Mitigation Banking Group Difference

The Mitigation Banking Group, Inc, (MBG) represents landowners throughout Florida who protect and preserve private land and restore the property back to its natural state (such as: removing invasive species from the land, planting native species, restoring the hydrology of the land, prescribed fires, etc…)

Since 2004, Victoria has successfully managed the mitigation credit purchases for 20+ mitigation & conservation banks throughout the State of Florida. In 2018, Victoria expanded her niche service, and has also been instrumental with the Sale of Mitigation Banks (Land & Credit Assets). Victoria is proven to be one of the best representatives in Florida to connect mitigation bankers & investors that want to purchase wetland/conservation mitigation banks.

What is a Wetland Mitigation Bank or a Conservation Bank?

Mitigation Banks are large parcels of land that are State and Federally permitted to provide Wetland Mitigation “Credits”. In exchange for the preservation and restoration of the land; Mitigation credits are awarded and can be sold to private & public landowners to “mitigate” for the loss of wetlands. The mitigation must be done within the same drainage basin/watershed to avoid a no-net loss of wetlands.
