Research opportunities in the Daintree World Heritage region of Far North Queensland, Australia

Michael and Maria Parsons recently purchased a substantial 165 acre lot of land in Far North Queensland, Australia. Entirely covered by tropical rainforest, it is contiguous with the Daintree World Heritage Area and National Park. Notable for its extensive size and impressively high biodiversity, the property will eventually be bequested for inclusion in the Daintree National Park system. It will soon become legally protected as a registered Nature Refuge and wildlife and biodiversity research facility, under Queensland’s “Protected Areas Programme.”

We invite fellow scientists, citizen scientists and researchers to brainstorm prospective projects for the refuge, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. For example, we will be carrying out general and species-specific biological research and surveys using camera traps, drones and many other recording and analytical techniques. To help achieve these goals, we also plan to work with local area schools and various universities to educate students about the importance of tropical biodiversity and conservation.

Hi @MICHAEL_PARSONS . I'm Akiba from FreakLabs and we specialize in wireless sensor networks for environmental monitoring. We're currently working on a project in Australia...
