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.

The future is looking bright after 22 young scientists from Kimberly Park State School visited QTFN's Aroona cattle station this week to grow their understanding of environmental challenges. Their ideas, energy and enthusiasm were infectious and it was such a pleasure to be able to educate our future leaders on biodiversity conservation. 👩‍🔬 QTFN's rockstar ecologist Dr Renee Rossini made a huge impact, taking the kids on an unforgettable journey to learn how biodiversity functions and how to maintain it in balance with agriculture.

💘Huge thanks to Commonwealth Bank for supporting Camp Koala, Wonder of Science for partnering with us and the WoS Young Science Ambassadors who provided invaluable support. Thanks to Hidden Vale Wildlife Centre for showing the kids some of their amazing conservation technology and Ipswich Council for providing community assistance funding.
