Earthwatch is a global not-for-profit environmental organisation that brings individuals from all walks of life together with world-class scientists for the good of the planet. Earthwatch Australia has been partnering with business, trusts, foundations and government in citizen science for more than 45 years and is one of the world’s largest private funders of independent scientific field research.

The Society, since its inception in 1923, has promoted the development of pure and applied entomological research in Australia, particularly in Queensland. Membership is open to anyone interested in Entomology. (Membership applications can be found in the links below.) The Society promotes liaison among entomologists through regular meetings, distributes a News Bulletin to members, provides collection permits and publishes the Australian Entomologist.
The Geological Society of Australia gives members an outstanding opportunity to keep in touch with scientific developments, present the results of their work, and contribute to discussions on vocational and scientific topics.
As the premier Australian geoscience society, membership provides an essential network of contacts as well as publications, meetings, events and opportunities.
As experts in environmental research, monitoring, evaluation and on-ground restoration works, Healthy Land and Water’s purpose is to safeguard the future of our planet. We are leading by example in South East Queensland working closely with community, Traditional Owners and all levels of government, to enhance and protect our environment.
We are an independent organisation, dedicated to delivering on-ground innovative and science-based solutions to challenges affecting our landscapes, waterways and biodiversity.
The Moreton Bay Foundation’s vision is for Moreton Bay to be an international treasure, known for its excellent environmental health, biological diversity, and ecological sustainability, its innovative robust and resilient economy, and its Indigenous culture and heritage.
We should all be concerned about preserving it, and the work of The Moreton Bay Foundation will give the Bay the voice it needs!
NPAQ advocates for the protection, expansion and good management of the protected areas in Queensland; offers a bushwalking and outdoor recreation activity program; and provides opportunities to participate in community conservation and citizen science projects.
Native Plants Queensland has enthusiastic members who cultivate, conserve and study our native plants. The Society for Growing Australian Plants (SGAP) was formed in 1957 for the purpose of studying and developing the horticultural potential of Australian native plants and preserving them through cultivation. With over 8,000 members throughout Australia, it is one of the largest horticultural societies in the country. Over the years, SGAP has made a significant contribution to the knowledge of the Australian flora, its cultivation and introduction into nurseries and home gardens.
Many outstanding recent advances have come from interaction among individuals from various disciplines, creating new departments of knowledge. This has resulted in new insights about the world in which we live, new disease cures have been found, and new profitable industries have developed.
Some examples of such departments are – molecular biology, biotechnology, genetic engineering, computer science and information technology, space sciences, geosciences, motion picture and television arts and sciences, instrumentation, and process and control engineering. Most fields of knowledge have impact on others. So an Academy bringing members of diverse fields together has many benefits for the individual and for the community.
As the State’s peak non-government environment group since 1969 we coordinate within the conservation sector in Queensland to be a voice for the environment. Our mission is to protect, conserve and sustain Queensland’s unique natural environment, making sure that our wildlife, rivers and landscapes continue to thrive for future generations.

Our aims are to encourage and foster an interest in frogs, to provide expert assistance and education for newcomers and undertake a continuous survey of the local native species to determine their relative abundance and distribution.
