A very warm welcome to our newest Business member, Queensland Trust for Nature!
Queensland Trust for Nature (QTFN) is an independent, not for profit organisation focused on the protection of Queensland’s biodiversity and natural landscapes.
QTFN operates a revolving fund that is used to buy, covenant and resell land with high conservation values and all philanthropic donations and proceeds from bequests, gifts, land sales and investments are paid in to the fund.
Since 2004, the revolving fund has been used to acquire 16 Queensland properties- more than 101,900 hectares- and sell 11 to protect more than 101,500 hectares of important biodiversity.
On the properties sold by QTFN, a range of endangered and of-concern regional ecosystems are now permanently protected and managed through conservation agreements. The properties provide habitats for many important marsupials, amphibians and birds, including the Brush-tailed rock wallaby, Wallum froglets and the Herbert River Ringtail possum.
QTFN also conduct volunteer programs for those who are passionate about the outdoors and conservation to get involved and assist with environmental monitoring and ecological projects.
