Queensland energy provider Stanwell Corporation has large land holdings in northern Queensland associated with its Kareeya hydro-electricity generation plant. Stanwell Corporation is committed to maintaining these assets for both production and biodiversity outcomes. This includes dedicated weed management, combating local invasive species such as Siam weed (Chromolaena odorata) and Candy-leaf (Stevia ovata).
Biotropica Australia has been contracted by Stanwell Corp to manage weeds on company assets. Staff who are highly trained in weed identification and control in Australian and overseas conditions have been assisting Stanwell Corp’s land management activities since 2009.
