PLANT A RAINFOREST

Our ‘Plant a Rainforest’ projects replant rainforest and re-establish habitat for plants and animals’ endemic to that specific ecosystem. We believe Trees Are The Answer.

PRESERVE WILDLIFE

Rainforests support an incredible range of plant and wildlife species that contribute significantly to the health of the rainforest ecosystem, such as The Southern Cassowary.

From little things, big things grow

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

PROTECT LOT 41 FOREVER

We have the opportunity to double the size of the protected area in the Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor. Lot 41 is ideally located right next to the National Park. This purchase will further contribute to the Milky Pine Nature Refuge and enhance connectivity by expanding the wildlife corridor.

Welcome

THE DAILY AUS IN THE DAINTREE

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.

Welcome

KURRANJI BUBU – LOT 46

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.

Now you see it. And now you don't. What a great rainforest camouflage. 

This juvenile cassowary loves hanging out around our Native Nursery. 

Did you know that until cassowary chicks are several months old, they are unable to eat whole fruits (like the adults do) and rely on their fathers to feed them with mashed food? As time goes on, juveniles are swallowing fruits whole, keeping seeds intake. This is how they can replant a rainforest 💩🌳🌲🌴 .

The Daintree Rainforest contains an almost complete record of the evolution of plant life on Earth and has more ancient families of flowering plants than anywhere else in the world (including the entire Amazon jungle).

The Daintree National Park is home to some incredible animals, including 25 rare or threatened species of animals, and some amazing plants, including 77 rare or threatened plant species.

The Daintree is kind of a BIG deal 💚.

And we are committed to protecting it. Who's with us?

There are numerous ways to get involved:

We're open today.

“While it’s easy to confuse changing the date of Australia Day with being unpatriotic, that's not the case. Many who believe in changing the date do so precisely because they want to celebrate Australia and they don’t feel that the 26th represents aspects of history that should be celebrated.” 🖊️: changeitourselves.com.au

It's business as usual for Rainforest Rescue today, as we stand in solidarity with our country’s Traditional Owners and the many Australians who want to see the date changed 🖤💛❤️.

We invite you to learn more about why it's important for Australia to change the date and/or to get involved @change.it.ourselves 🖤💛❤️.

#CritterCorner: At the top of the cassowary food pyramid is fruit, fruit and more fruit. Their passion for fruit makes this very beautiful critter very important to the Daintree (and the world!).

After eating (often, very large!) fruit whole, their digestive system is gentle enough to keep the seeds intact. As the local Southern Cassowaries (Casuarius casuarius) roam the rainforest they disperse the seeds into a new area of the rainforest in their own special fertiliser formula 💩💚.

Follow the link in our bio to learn more about cassowaries on our website.

“The 26th of January was chosen as the date of Australia Day because it was the day the first of the British ships arrived in what we now call New South Wales.

As such, for Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders this date represents the beginning of their dispossession. For many of them, and many other Australians, that date can't be seen as anything other than a Day of Mourning for the First Nation's Peoples.

While it’s easy to confuse changing the date of Australia Day with being unpatriotic, that's not the case. Many who believe in changing the date do so precisely because they want to celebrate Australia and they don’t feel that the 26th represents aspects of history that should be celebrated.” 🖊️: changeitourselves.com.au

It will be business as usual for Rainforest Rescue on 26th January 2023, as we stand in solidarity with our country’s Traditional Owners and the many Australians who want to see the date changed 🖤💛❤️.

We can’t rewrite the past, but we can change how we acknowledge it into the future.

Head over to @change.it.ourselves to learn more about why it's important for Australia to change the date or to get involved.

This read's offering a glimpse into why it's so hard sometimes to talk about climate change, and what can we do.

We'd love to hear what you are reading at the moment 👀.

It's that time of the year again, when we like to stop and smell the roses. Definitely don't smell the Austrobaileya, a unique Daintree flowering vine that is found nowhere else in the world. Its spiraling flowers with pale green petals smell like rotten fish 🥴🤭🤭.

Happy Holidays to you and yours. Wishing you all the best for the New Year.

Rainforest Rescue will be closed from 5pm AEDT on Friday 23 December 2022, reopening at 9am AEDT on Tuesday 3 January 2023.

As you roam the Daintree, do you ever wonder how plants and trees "know" which way is up and down, if they are being attacked by insects, or how they "see" light? We know we have! There are some great answers in the 'What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses' 📚🌿.

Written by a renowned biologist, Daniel Chamovitz, this book takes a good look into how plants experience the world. Humans and plants may have a lot more in common than we think. Do you have any book recommendations for the holidays? If so, leave a comment or send us a message.

#CritterCorner: Named after its distinctive white lips, the White-Lipped Tree Frog (Litoria infrafrenata) is Australia's largest tree frog (up to 14 cm).

While this amphibian can be found in the Daintree rainforest, the species is also able to tolerate heavily modified environments and may inhabit urban gardens and parks, roadsides, fields, and agricultural land.

What's especially interesting about this frog is its two distinct calls.

The mating call of the male frog is a loud ‘wark, wark’ that resembles a dog barking.

The frog also emits a cat-like ‘meow’ sound when distressed.

Listen up (watch till the end) 🐸👂.

We had a wonderful and important conversation with @finding.space.podcast and @found__space🎙, talking about the importance of restoring and protecting the environment.

Our CEO and Partnerships Manager spoke about how it simply makes sense to continue protecting one of the oldest rainforests in the world, The Daintree Rainforest 🌳🌳💚.

We are honoured and excited to be working with many good people who are doing good things to help support the future of our lives and the life of our planet.

And we are finishing this year on a high note 💚.
