Nigel Tucker with Gary, Jeremy and Kieran from the Juru tribal group

Together with BMT WBM, Biotropica was commissioned by the Queensland Office of the Coordinator General (OCG) to develop a work programme of land management and rehabilitation activities for the Abbott Point State Development Area (APSDA). Biotropica staff worked closely with Gary, Jess, Jeremy and Kieran and others at the Juru Enterprises, undertaking local capacity building workshops, ground-truthing surveys, seed collection, nursery establishment and providing training in plant propagation and maintenance.  The group has successfully propagated a number of local native species and revegetation using this stock commenced in March 2016.
