The Queensland Threatened Plant Network (QTPN) is a collaborative project established under the Queensland Government’s Threatened Species Program and the Australian Network for Plant Conservation (ANPC). The QTPN aims to provide support to stakeholders contributing to threatened plant recovery across the state, and to facilitate the formation of partnerships among groups conserving native flora.

The network is a pilot programme currently funded from August 2023 to August 2025.  The project is governed by a Steering Committee that meets monthly to provide direction and support to the Project Manager.

Key Objectives

The QTPN will contribute significantly to threatened plant species conservation by facilitating a collective, informed and collaborative approach to threatened plant recovery.  Notably, the Network will: 

    • Develop and maintain a network of relevant organisations and individuals that contribute to the recovery of threatened plant species in Queensland.  
    • Coordinate efforts through participation, cooperation and information exchange. 
    • Facilitate addressing knowledge gaps that inhibit recovery of Queensland’s threatened plant species. 
    • Collate and disseminate relevant information about threatened plant conservation projects to members. 
    • Develop, support and promote threatened plant education and training programs. 
    • Maintain regular communication with members through appropriate mechanisms, including an annual Network members symposium. 
    • Facilitate the development of threatened species recovery teams or working groups by connecting network members with similar threatened plant recovery interests or skills/experience.
