Showcasing Resilient Grazing Landscapes with Better Biodiversity

This project aims to showcase how resilient grazing landscapes (those in better land condition) also have better biodiversity. To achieve this we aim to use innovative automated field survey methods to gain a snapshot of biodiversity in both good and poor land condition paddocks for comparison. We’re collaborating with JCU on this project, which is supported by the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority.

McDonald Creek Restoration Project

This project aims to rehabilitate part of McDonald Creek in Irvinebank, which has become silted up from sediment mainly due to past mining activities. This stage of the project involves a feasibility study to estimate the scope and cost of restoration works. Supported by Queensland Government’s Natural Resources Investment Program.

Gilbert River Catchment ‘Digital Twin’ Project

This project aims to enable estimation of water budgets from the entire Gilbert catchment down to a field scale – integrating available monitoring data, water modelling, and spatial data – and support stakeholder engagement on water storage management and its governance, social license, and environmental risk. Supported by Department of Environment and Science for the QWMN.

Tackling Regional Adversity

This is a grassroots project based in Croydon Shire, addressing social isolation, despondency and lack of services that people experience in remote communities.

Our project coordinator is based in Croydon, working with a steering committee  of community members to deliver a series of events.

Croydon Food Security Strategy

Improving access to affordable healthy food for the people of Croydon Shire. We’re working with providers and supply chains to improve food security and to promote household self-reliance in this small remote community.

Remoteness and climate are real daily challenges to food security in Croydon Shire. We’re building on earlier engagement to find solutions.

Fire Smart Mareeba Shire

This project aims to build community bushfire resilience within the Mareeba Shire. It is lifting the level of fire literacy, community coordination and confidence in responding to and mitigating fire risk. This is being achieved through providing resources, targeted fire mitigation and management planning at a community and property level. This project has received grant funding from the Australian Government.

Powerful Pollinators

Promoting bee keeping and the importance of beneficial insects in horticultural systems. Pollinators are essential for agriculture and healthy landscapes. We show farmers the important role of pollinator species and host plants, and how to increase pollinator numbers on their farm. Supported by Smart Farms Small Grants, part of the Australian Government National Landcare Program.
