Queensland Trust For Nature

Conservation is a shared responsibility.

QTFN works with landowners, government agencies, scientists and other non-profit groups to identify, enhance and protect private land with high conservation values.

 

The Trust does not lock up land. It promotes positive interaction on covenanted land to improve environmental, social, economic and educational outcomes and adds value to properties, where possible.
