GroNATIVE – A new app to improve Queensland’s biodiversity

Beginning in 2016, Natura Pacific, partnering with Griffith University, was successfully awarded a grant to create a brand new app for south-east Queensland. As part of the Labor Government’s ‘Advance Queensland’ initiative, this project seeks to provide innovative and exciting new technology for people in south-east Queensland to bring back native vegetation. From private urban gardens to landscape-scale bush regeneration projects, the app uses post code geo-location, pre-clearing remnant ecosystem data and tailor made gardening styles to allow people to hand-pick a planting palette that will flourish in their chosen area.  The app promotes the use of native plants in order to bring back biodiversity, reduce the occurrence of garden escapes becoming new environmental weeds and provide a linking corridor of vegetation that will ‘re-green’ our region in the face of our changing climate. GroNATIVE was launched in February 2017 and is free to download.
