How YOU can help

home-image1

Save a rainforest

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.

home-image2

PLANT a rainforest

Many rainforests are disappearing with 65,000 hectares cleared or significantly de-graded every single day! Imagine a world without them and all their species.

PROTECT WILDLIFE

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.

Welcome

DONATE NOW

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. Become a Rainforest Guardian today!

COMMUNITY TREE PLANTING DAY 2019 – 3000 TREES PLANTED AT NIGHTWINGS

With climate change looming, planting trees may be our best opportunity to preserve the land and help reduce carbon in the atmosphere while expanding precious habitat and protecting biodiversity. Rainforest Rescue believes in the power of trees to help regulate our climate and ensure a more sustainable world. Rainforests provide rich ecosystem services that support and enhance life on our planet.

#ForestFacts - Did you know that Australia's tallest waterfall is located in the Wet Tropics?⠀
Wallaman Falls is located in Girringun National Park and boasts a main drop of 268 metres (879 ft) which makes it the country's tallest single-drop waterfall. The pool at the bottom of the waterfall is 20 metres (66 ft) deep and the site has an estimated to attract 100,000 visitors annually. We can see why!!! 😍⠀

🌳The Wet Tropics covers an area of 894,420ha which is equivalent to 162 Sydney Harbours. ⠀
🌳79% of the Wet Tropics area is protected by 31 National Parks and State Forests. ⠀
🌳The Daintree is just one of those National Parks that covers 17,000ha which is about 25,000 football fields.⠀
🌳The Daintree Rainforest is one of the oldest continually surviving rainforests on Earth & is the most biologically diverse tropical rainforest in the world! ⠀
🌳This is the only place in the world where two natural World Heritage Sites meet. The Daintree Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef at Cape Tribulation. ⠀

#CritterCorner - Would you believe me if I told you that there are Kangaroo's that climb trees in the Daintree Rainforest?⠀
Introducing the Lumholtz’s and Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo, only found in the Wet Tropics!⠀
Us mupee’s, as we’re known in the local indigenous dialect, live high in the rainforest canopy and are best described as a blend between the possum and the kangaroo, which evolved over 50 million years ago. ⠀
Fun Fact: Our forearms, feet, claws and tail have evolved in response to the canopy... and we're the only ‘roos that can move backwards!⠀

#CritterCorner - Oh hey there! Don't mind me, I'm just hanging around, I wasn't expecting visitors! ⠀
I'm a Spectacled Flying-fox (Pteropus conspicillatus) and I live in the Wet Tropics in Far North Queensland, but you can also find relatives of mine in Papua New Guinea, parts of Indonesia and the Solomon Islands. We're a pretty helpful species, as we often distribute seeds which helps the rainforest regenerate.⠀
Our wingspans can reach up to 1.6 metres, we have pale, straw-coloured fur around their eyes that look like a pair of spectacles, and we are called flying foxes because of our large eyes, pricked ears and long snouts that make us look a little bit like a dog or fox.⠀
We're vegetarians and eat mainly nectar and fruit and we spend the day in communal tree-top camps found in the upper canopy of tall trees in rainforest, freshwater swamps and mangroves. ⠀
We are part of the Megabats family and we don’t use sonar or echolocation, instead we depend on our vision and excellent sense of smell. 🦇⠀

Thank you to Cairns Post for the great photo! 🙏⠀

Wishing you the very best for your holidays and the New Year!⠀
Whether you've been a supporter, a volunteer, a reader or a sharer, we're grateful for you and your being part of Rainforest Rescue. Rescuing pristine rainforest from development and restoring damaged and degraded land to renew and expand rainforest ecosystems is only possible because of you. ⠀
Over the last 20 years you've contributed to the rescue of 34 properties in Australia, 22 nature reserves, 5 wildlife corridors, put 2 properties back into the Daintree National Park / World Heritage Area, restored rainforest to full health at Lot 46 and the continued transformation of legacy sugarcane fields into habitat at NightWings. ⠀
This year alone you've put over 10,000 trees back onto the land to catalyse renewed rainforest ecosystems, started the process of qualifying two more significant nature reserves, extended a growing wildlife corridor, and you rescued two more magnificent rainforest blocks. Thank you for being a part of this remarkable effort and thank you for being an integral part of Rainforest Rescue.⠀
May your holidays be exactly what you wish for.⠀
With love and for the rainforests,⠀
Branden, Emily, Kristin, MaryBeth Grant, and Marine 🌱💚🌳⠀

#ForestFacts - Did you know that the Daintree Rainforest is home to a diverse array of colorful, unique fungi species? Rainforest fungi come in all shapes, colors, and sizes and they flourish in the hot, wet summers of Tropical North Queensland. Fungi are critical to life in the rainforest - they break down wood and soil into nutrients that fuel the spectacular plants and animals surrounding them! ⠀
What a BEAUTIFUL part of the intricate Daintree ecosystem! 🍄 ⠀
