Some of our members have been photographing native species since the society was established in 1970. Most of their images were originally in the form of 35mm slides. In January 2008 our branch successfully applied for a grant from Townsville City Council, to purchase a quality scanner in order to give these slides a new lease on life. As a result, some of the scanned images have been used in this website. We gratefully acknowledge the support of Townsville City Council.

Keith Townsend

Many of the images that we digitised came from the large back catalogue of Keith Townsend (above) who is a long-serving member of NPQ Townsville, formerly SGAP Townsville. For many years Keith has also provided images for use in the Townsville City Council Natural Assets Database.

Russell Cumming

As a professional botanist Russell Cumming (above) has perhaps seen as much or more of our native landscape than anyone. Russell has been a long time friend and supporter of NPQ Townsville, formerly SGAP Townsville.  We are indebted to Russell for the generous contribution to this website from his large photographic collection

Greg Calvert

Dr Greg Calvert (above) is a professional botanist with a passion for all aspects of his native environment which he is keen to share at every opportunity.  A long time member of NPQ Townsville, formerly SGAP Townsville, Greg is always contributing his time and expertise to our meetings, and his photographic contribution to this website speaks for itself.
