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!

Lot 36 Ronald Road is our 40th property rescue (our 39th property in the Daintree). Another 2.03 hectares protected forever, thanks to YOU and your support. BUT this rescue was a little different… you may not have heard about it yet and you won’t have received a letter or email, or seen us fundraising on social media for this one…



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.

26 July is International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem (colloquially known as World Mangrove Day) 💚.

Take a moment to enjoy this #MangroveMeditation and marvel in their beauty 🙏🏻.

In the Daintree Rainforest mangroves link the two #UNESCO world heritage areas of the rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef together!

"Mangroves are rare, spectacular and prolific ecosystems on the boundary between land and sea. These extraordinary ecosystems contribute to the wellbeing, food security, and protection of coastal communities worldwide.

They support a rich biodiversity and provide a valuable nursery habitat for fish and crustaceans.

Mangroves also act as a form of natural coastal defence against storm surges, tsunamis, rising sea levels and erosion. Their soils are highly effective carbon sinks, sequestering vast amounts of carbon.

Yet mangroves are disappearing three to five times faster than overall global forest losses, with serious ecological and socio-economic impacts.

Current estimates indicate that mangrove coverage has been divided by two in the past 40 years."

Did you know that most birds share their parental duties equally; however, about 1% of bird species delegate all the chicks care to their fathers?

For example, a male Southern Cassowary incubates eggs for 50 days and then cares for the chicks for the next 3 years as a solo parent 🥚🐤🐤.

So, if you ever come across a family of Southern Cassowaries in the Daintree, make sure you give them a lot of space and don't approach - those beautiful, large, colourful, flightless fathers are very protective of their young.

Take a moment to learn more about Southern Cassowaries online - link in bio 💚👀.

IT’S OFFICIAL: Lot 36 Ronald Road, Daintree is safe from development 💚.

Another 2.03 hectares protected forever, thanks to YOU and your support.

This rainforest property rescue is very special - we didn't call for any additional fundraising activities, because a number of individuals, businesses and organisations contributed funds outside of our appeals. These funds went directly to the Rainforest Rescue ‘Rescue Fund’, which allowed us to act quickly and secure this rainforest property so we can protect it forever 💚.

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.
