About Us

The Lions Club of North Queensland and James Cook University have been in partnership since the early 1990s when the Australian Lions Foundation for Scientific and Medical Research on Marine Species Dangerous to Humans was founded.

The Foundation aims to better understand envenoming jellyfish and other marine stingers, so that there can be better management of human/animal interactions as well as improved preventative and curative measures to ensure that no sting is lethal.
