Daintree properties saved so far

The Daintree Rainforest is recognised as one of the most ecologically diverse in the world. Containing species that have links to ancient lineages, the Daintree Rainforest is of international conservation importance.
While large areas of the Daintree have been included in the World Heritage Area, parts of that listing includes freehold land between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation that remains unprotected from development.
Rainforest Rescue’s Daintree Buy Back and Protect Forever Project identifies and purchases rainforest at risk of development and protects it forever.

Forest Creek properties

Nine  properties are now protected in the Forest Creek precinct. Five of these are co-joined and share a border with the Daintree National Park/World Heritage Area, and three others are directly linked with Rainforest Rescue properties that then join the Park. These properties are named the Rainforest Rescue Nature Refuge. All properties are classified as 'essential habitat' for the endangered southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii) and are also known habitat for the rare Bennett’s tree-kangaroo (Dendrolagus bennettianus). These properties and the surrounding environment are habitat for a variety of filmy ferns, palms and other rare species and regional ecosystem.

Kimberley properties

Ten properties are now protected by Rainforest Rescue in the Kimberley region. Three properties are located on Cape Tribulation Road including the Tree Friends Wildlife Refuge and Cassowary Corridor Wildlife Refuge. Three properties can be found on Milky Pine Road which form the Milky Pine Wildlife Refuge and three (soon to be four) properties comprise the new Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor. These properties and the immediate area have been classified as 'essential habitat' for the endangered southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii) and also contain six threatened plant species including Noah’s walnut (Endiondra microneura) and the black palm (Normanbya normanbyi).

 

Cow Bay properties

Rainforest Rescue owns nine properties in the Cow Bay area which form the Baralba Corridor Nature Refuge. These properties form a link between two isolated areas of the Daintree National Park/World Heritage Area. The properties form a valuable wildlife corridor for the endangered southern cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii) as well as three vulnerable and 11 rare plants including the only known location of a previously thought extinct species of fern.
