Queensland Trust for Nature’s third party support for Nature Positive Economy CRC: A New Era for Biodiversity in Queensland

March 11, 2024

We are thrilled to shine a spotlight on Queensland Trust for Nature (QTFN) as a third party support for the Nature Positive Economy CRC. As the most naturally biodiverse state in one of the world’s most biologically rich countries, Queensland stands at the forefront of biodiversity conservation and enhancement. QTFN’s innovative approach not only champions the preservation of ecosystems and species but also unlocks their potential to yield far-reaching benefits for people, organisations, and the environment.

 

Transforming Biodiversity into Opportunity

 

QTFN proves that biodiversity is not just an environmental asset but a viable business opportunity. By restoring and protecting ecologically significant habitats, and collaborating on impactful projects, QTFN demonstrates that investing in biodiversity delivers multifaceted returns – from environmental and economic gains to social and cultural outcomes.

 

Valuing Nature in Diverse Ways

 

The value QTFN brings extends beyond conservation. The organisation transforms protected spaces into versatile assets that serve as outdoor STEM classrooms, research sites, community projects, strategic offsetting opportunities, or productive agricultural land, showcasing biodiversity’s tangible benefits.

Meet Dr Liz O’Brien, Steering QTFN Towards Greater Impact

At the helm of QTFN as Chief Executive Officer, Dr Liz O’Brien brings a wealth of experience in research, policy, and strategy development. Passionate about enhancing biodiversity to yield comprehensive returns, Liz’s leadership is instrumental in advancing QTFN’s mission.

 

A United Vision for a Nature Positive Economy

 

QTFN’s partnership with the Nature Positive Economy CRC underscores a shared commitment to fostering a sustainable transition to a nature-positive economy. This collaboration aims to harness cross-sector innovation, breaking down silos and paving the way for integrated solutions that balance biodiversity with productive landscapes.
