Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service

In 2009, ARCS entered into a Restoration Agreement with the Queensland Government through what was then the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM). Under the 10-year Agreement, ARCS has undertaken to carry out restoration of rainforest on cleared areas on land purchased by the Queensland Government. This service, estimated to be worth $3.4 million over 10 years, is being provided at no cost to the Government. In return, ARCS has access to a number of buildings that can be used to accommodate staff and volunteers working on the restoration project.

The Restoration Agreement is currently the responsibility of Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service within the Department of Environment and Science. A Steering Committee consisting of QPWS officials and ARCS representatives oversees the Springbrook Rescue project.

DERM and ARCS were also partners with CSIRO in the Wireless Sensor Network project at Springbrook. This is described on the Wireless Sensor Network page under the Science menu on this web site.
