Together We Can Protect Rainforests Forever

Rainforests are under constant threat from development and climate change. Protecting and restoring rainforests is our business. Join Us!

How YOU can help

Rainforests support around half of all land-based species of plants and animals on Earth. Structurally complex, rainforests are essential to both animals and humans.



Many rainforests are disappearing with 65,000 hectares cleared or significantly de-graded every single day. Restoration is possible. We believe Trees Are The Answer.



We are losing the rich diversity of the rainforests. Many of these irreplaceable animal and plant species are now under threat and need our help to survive into the future.

From little things, big things grow

and look how you’ve helped us grow since 1999!

You did it! Lot 19 Forest Close, almost 7 hectares of rainforest, will be protected forever.
This property reconnects the five properties within the Rainforest Rescue Nature Refuge with the protected National Park and World Heritage Area.



The team from The Daily Aus, in partnership with the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF), came to the Daintree Rainforest to see the impacts of climate change for themselves and understand the vital role our work plays in helping mitigate climate change.



In 2010 we purchased an abandoned palm oil plantation at Lot 46 Cape Tribulation Rd & began restoring it. In 2021 the local Yalanji language committee granted Lot 46 the traditional name of Kurranji Bubu (Cassowary Land) and it is now a protected Nature Refuge.



When you give generously, you become part of a committed team of individuals who collectively are helping to preserve some of the most biodiverse habitats and the species that live within them on this planet.

And we have been doing this for over 50 years. 2022 marks an important year as we are going one step further in our environmental actions by supporting Rainforest Rescue in growing 50,000 trees in the Daintree. It is our mission to support crucial plant rescue and protection programs, as well as inspiring a love of plant science in generations to come.”

The goal for our new nursery is to be able to produce 150,000 trees per year, and for this to ultimately be a self-sustaining social enterprise that serves the local community. During construction and when fully operational, it will also provide skilled jobs that make a real difference to people in the local area, including indigenous communities.

But to get there, we need your help to be part of something special that will serve the Daintree and beyond.

Your donation can help us scale up the nursery and create positive impact for generations to come.

It's estimated there may be as many as 73,000 species of trees on earth 🌳🌳🌳😲.

In the Wet Tropics alone, you can find about 920 different species of trees.

And within 1 hectare of the Daintree Rainforest you can reasonably expect between 120 to 150 different species of tree. Such rich diversity!

Conservation work in the Daintree supports this ancient forest ecosystem that has been evolving longer than any other in the world - by tens of millions of years - and is Australia’s largest and most biodiverse.

Did you know that a human breathes about 9.5 tones of air in a year, but oxygen only makes up about 21% of that air, by mass, and we extract a little over a third of the oxygen from each breath?

So, that's about 740kg of oxygen per year. Very roughly, it’s seven or eight trees’ worth 🌳🌳🌳.

With 7.753 billion (2020) people on earth, we need MANY trees!

The Rainforest Rescue’s native plant nursery propagates and grows all the rainforest trees for our Daintree lowland revegetation and restoration projects, which is about 12,000 plants per year. However, our new Native Nursery will be capable of growing 150,000 trees per year, which will help us replant a minimum of 22 hectares of rainforest habitat every year.

#CritterCorner: Have you seen a Lemuroid Ringtail Possum (Hemibelideus lemuroides) recently?

Climate change has been threatening these possums, because they live in cool, moist, high altitude forests, where any increase in temperature impacts their ability to maintain their body temperature.

Next time you visit the Wet Tropics, walk quietly scanning the canopy - you may spot a Lemuroid Ringtail Possum leaping up to 2-3 metres between branches.

Have you seen the ‘The Green Planet’ 🌏💚 already?

The BBC’s Natural History has partnered with Moondance Foundation to launch a campaign inspired by David Attenborough series ‘The Green Planet’, which takes viewers into the parallel world of plants.

From local communities restoring their natural green spaces, to inventors using ground-breaking technology to preserve our green planet, the campaign aims to inspire hope – not fear – taking audiences on a journey through wild forests, open meadows and right into the centre of our towns and cities.
