Kuranda Conservation Community Nursery
Kuranda Conservation is an entirely volunteer organization whose objectives are to assist the community to use land in an ecologically sustainable way and to enhance natural biodiversity through education and demonstration.
We promote awareness of the environment required for the preservation of cassowaries including habitat protection and enhancement, and domestic and feral animal control. We participate in research, in particular the CSIRO Cassowary Recovery Plan for the Wet Tropics, to better understand the needs of this unique, umbrella species. If the cassowary survives then the other fauna and flora of our region will also.
We believe we’ll make good decisions about what we grow on our properties, what pets we keep, how we behave on the roads and bush tracks and how we design our towns and houses by measuring the impact our actions have on cassowary habitat in this part of the world.
KCons supports the Wet Tropics Management Authority and Barron Catchment Care Association and the regional natural resources management body, Terrain, and networks with other like-minded community groups. We also foster volunteers and facilitate regional educational and research entities and individuals.
Our community native nursery of around 6000 local species, provides plants for our ongoing projects and activities which include revegetation/improvement projects from very small to very large. The plants are for sale, at a very reasonable price, to the public. Saturday mornings are set aside for nursery work and plantings and you are welcome to drop in for a chat or to join us at the work bench for a bit of potting up.
