We developed the passport in partnership with Nature Play Queensland and the Yugambeh Region Aboriginal Council. 

The nature-based activities developed with Agents of Discovery and Nature Play Queensland deliver on key strategic outcomes of the Our Natural City Strategy.

We also provide support to citizen science projects that contribute to conservation initiatives. These projects collect data to help with research and contribute vital information to the City's Flora and Fauna database.
