Many of our members have been photographing native species since the society was established in 1970, usually in the form of 35mm slides.  In recent years most of these slides have languished in boxes, having been superceded by digital technology. 

In January 2008 the Society successfully applied for a grant from Townsville City Council, to purchase a quality scanner in order to give these slides a new lease of life and as a result some of these images have been used in this website.  The Society acknowledges the support of  Townsville City Council.




Many of the images, that have so far been digitised, come from the large back cataloque belonging to Keith Townsend who is a long-serving member of SGAP Townsville. 
For many years he has provided images for use in the
Townsville City Council Database

Dr Greg Calvert 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 SGAP Townsville, Greg is always contributing his time and expertise to our meetings, and his photograhic contribution to this website speaks for itself.
