Queensland Trust for Nature

Securing Queensland’s biodiversity for future generations

Queensland is Australia’s most biodiverse state with more plant and animal species than any other state or territory.
With more than 85 percent of land in Queensland privately owned or managed, use and management of private land is critical to achieving sustainable environmental goals.
Queensland Trust for Nature (QTFN) is an independent not-for-profit organisation that works with private landholders as well as educators, business and government to develop and demonstrate scalable environmental projects on private land.
As well as working with landowners, QTFN owns and actively manages several properties, including a cattle station, a koala sanctuary and an island in the Southern Great Barrier Reef.

🎉1000 Thank You's 🙌 to 40 volunteers who planted 1000 trees for the benefit of koalas at our Koala Crossing property on Saturday.

Thank you to Earth Frequency Festival for their generous donation and Scenic Rim Regional Council's One Million Trees program.

Planting trees and joining in bush regeneration programs is one of the best things we can all do to help native species thrive.
