28 Jun Academic research: Working with Universities, PHD studies, Climate Mediation
Tropical ReGen Project is operating within one of the most biodiverse places in the world. The collaboration between James Cook University PhD students, as well as other regional and international institutions will be an important role moving forward. Accurately researching and reporting on biodiversity, species richness, soil quality and anthropogenic impact can offer solutions and inspiration for current and future climate mediation.
Located and operating in the Daintree Rainforest, ClimateForce and project Tropical Regen is enriched by one of the most biodiverse ecosystems in the world. Through our revegetation process, we are partnering with a variety of organisations and educational institutions, such as James Cook University. Collaboration with the university, as well as a number of PHD students, is a wonderful way to connect the local community and the project. By working together, Tropical Regen holds potential for long term studies on reforestation, species distribution, ecological biodiversity, ethnobotany, soil quality and more.
This unique insight into land that was once ancient rainforest, converted into agricultural farming, and now being prepped for reforestation will be the first of many Tropical Regen projects. Involving multiple stakeholders and community members encourages climate mediation, in order to highlight values and common ground mutual interests for future engagement and inclusivity.
