The Boost biodiversity projects cost 3000 BP each.

But to make all starters spawn in the Terarium map, players will need to complete 4 donations to the Terarium Club. These cost 3000 BP (Blueberry Points) each and are called “Boost biodiversity in the X Biome,” which means, one per each biome in the Terarium.

A total of 12000 BP is needed to unlock the spawn for all starters in Scarlet and Violet DLC The Indigo Disk, so, if you want to catch those precious Pokemon, you better start grinding.
