Aims of NQNHG

Aims of the North Queensland Natural History Group

Preamble

 

There is a growing network of amateur, professional and budding naturalists in north Queensland with a wide range of first-hand knowledge of the natural history of the region, and an eagerness to learn and participate in natural history oriented activities.

The North Queensland Natural History Group (NQNHG) has formed to learn, share and enjoy north Queensland’s natural history, and to support the sustainable management of the natural values of the region. NQNHG will share knowledge both among its members and the community at large, including traditional owners, pastoralists, conservation land managers and other interested parties. NQNHG will encourage participation by anyone with a passion for the natural riches of the region. The group will undertake at least two field events each year.

Summary

 

We are a group of amateur, professional and budding naturalists in north Queensland with a wide range of first-hand knowledge of the natural history of the region, supporting the sustainable management of the natural values of tropical Queensland. This is to be achieved through collection and documentation of data and provision of this data and information to landholders and land managers. The group aims to promote citizen science, environmental sustainability, ecosystem services, protected areas and any other land of environmental value as assets to landowners and the community.
