The Girringun Biodiversity & Nursery Program involves restoration of habitats and corridors of
endangered species such as Tree Kangaroo, Mahogany Gliders and Cassowary; control of pest weeds, revegetation of areas damaged by natural disasters such as cyclones and the collection and propagation of local endemic plants, trees and grasses for use in revegetation work.

Over time, the vast majority of plants required for the revegetation work will be supplied by the Girringun Native Plant Nursery. 

The Biodiversity and Nursery team is well supported within the corporation by Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre, Girringun Aboriginal Rangers, IPA and TUMRA. They conduct much of the on-ground operation to achieve meaningful management outcomes for Girringun, with a strong emphasis on culture and caring for country both land and sea.
