Queensland philanthropists and tourism entrepreneurs Graham and Jude Turner have joined forces with The University of Queensland to establish a multi-million-dollar conservation project at Hidden Vale, an hour west of Brisbane.

In what is thought to be the largest family contribution to conservation in Queensland history, the Turners have committed more than $18.5 million to the project from the Turner Family Foundation.

The contribution includes building costs and a donation of ongoing funding to support research grants and UQ operation of the facility for breeding and rehabilitating wildlife and protecting endangered species over the next 30 years.
