Selling nature short

Queensland’s leading conservation organisations have released a new report into the Queensland Government’s continuing failure to invest the resources needed to meet its own targets for new national parks and protected areas for wildlife.

New National Parks Director General

Tamara was previously a Deputy DG in the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection, has worked for the Department of Environment and Resource Management in waste avoidance and resource efficiency, and has a Bachelor of Arts from Australian National University in politics and environmental geography.

Tribute to Syd Curtis

A key link with the history of Queensland national parks has been broken with the death of H. Sydney Curtis at Killarney on 27 December 2015. While very few members would have come into contact with Syd, for 25 years he was most influential in the identification, declaration and management of our national parks.

Tribute to Bill Goebel

Sadly NPAQ life member William Goebel, passed away on the 2nd December 2015 at age 93. Bill has contributed enormously towards the conservation of the protected area that is now known as Girraween National Park. This area that now incorporates the Goebel property had been his backyard since the age of nine when his family purchased land for farming in 1931.
