Encourage Nature

Queensland is Australia’s most biodiverse state with more plant and animal species than any other state or territory, bringing an immense responsibility when it comes to nature conservation.
Queensland Trust for Nature (QTFN) is an independent not-for-profit organisation employing a business approach to level-up its environmental impact which means building and delivering projects that demonstrate both conservation outcomes and financial sense.
With more than 85 percent of land in Queensland privately owned or managed, use and management of private land is central to achieving sustainable environmental goals.  As well as working with landowners to permanently protect and restore land with high conservation values, QTFN owns and actively manages several properties, including a cattle station, a koala sanctuary and an island in the Southern Great Barrier Reef. We are working tirelessly to secure and improve habitat for koalas, flatback turtles, brush-tailed rock-wallabies, cassowaries and many other threatened species.

Ecological burns are an important tool for mitigating unplanned fire and maintaining biodiversity. This burn will also maximise habitat for the beautiful and ancient grass-tree (Xanthorrhoea johnsonii) which responds to fire by flowering profusely!
