PROTECT A RAINFOREST

Our ‘Protect a Rainforest’ project focuses on purchasing rainforest blocks for conservation and protecting them forever, increasing connectivity and protecting biodiversity.

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.

PROPAGATE AND GROW

Rainforest Rescue’s native nursery in Cow Bay propagates and grows all the rainforest trees for our Daintree lowland restoration projects. It’s time to grow!

From little things, big things grow

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

25 YEARS PROTECTING & RESTORING RAINFORESTS

In 1999, our founders set out to protect the under-protected rainforest in Australia. What matters then still matters now. Rainforests are biodiverse, ecologically rich habitats that are important to our planet’s health. To borrow a phrase, “The better time to plant a tree was 25 years ago. The best time is now.”

Welcome

YOUR SUPPORT WILL HELP THE NURSERY THRIVE

Thanks to your support, we can now purchase the practical items required for our nursery to deliver a tree-planting capacity of 150,000 trees a year. Your support in ensuring the continuing operations of the Daintree’s largest nursery is inspiring, and we can’t thank you enough.

Welcome

2024 ANNUAL COMMUNITY TREE PLANTING DAY

After what has felt like the longest wet season in recent memory, it was a real joy for the Rainforest Rescue community to come together at Nightwings Rainforest Centre on 18th May.
Thanks to everyone who participated, the day exceeded all expectations!

Welcome

We’re always testing, trying and looking at new ways in which we can help improve our methods - efficient, positive outcomes are what the Daintree needs if we are going to be able to restore it and protect it FOREVER. And with the environmental challenges we’re facing, this can’t happen soon enough.

So, right now, we’re testing two approaches with their own methods, benefits and challenges:

1️⃣. The Spacious Path, which requires less resources and time spent maintaining the plantings until they mature; however this method will take longer before a canopy closure takes place.

2️⃣. The Dense Thicket, where the emphasis lies on maximising tree density to outcompete weeds and achieve rapid canopy closure. This method requires manual weeding until natural competition among trees starts to take place.

By documenting and analysing these methods over the course of two years, we’re aiming to identify what will enable the fastest and strongest growing rainforests. As well as purchasing and protecting more of the fractured Daintree in the process.

Learn more about each of the pathways on our website: rainforestrescue.org.au/what-does-it-take-to-rescue-a-rainforest 🌳🌳🌳.

Did you know that Far North Queensland is one of the most bat-diverse corners of the continent?

Long-time friends of Rainforest Rescue, Bats and Trees Society of Cairns (BATSOC) 🦇🦇🦇, shared their perspectives on the importance of bats to the Wet Tropics Rainforest. 

In this heart-warming conversation with Maree Treadwell Kerr and Sera Steves, captured at Ecofiesta 2024, hear how they first became bat fans, how Branden fell in love with bats and why flying foxes are inspiring cocktails. 

There is a common goal of caring for wildlife and the environment, coupled with a desire to deepen our understanding of the relationships between animals, plants and the habitats they live in 💚.

Head over to our YouTube channel youtube.com/@rainforestrescueau to hear more.

#CritterCorner: Have you ever heard the Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii)? If you have, you will never forget one of the lowest frequency sounds made by any bird 🐦👂.

If you`ve ever watched a cassowary "call", with its head tilted down toward the ground and the whole body shuddering as the sound is created, you`ll know that this powerful bird employs its entire body to communicate. When you hear this sound in the wild, you ‘feel’ the sound as it vibrates through the air. Sometimes it`s hard to believe this is a bird`s call.

Last Wednesday, on #WorldEnvironmentDay, UN Secretary-General Guterres delivered a pivotal speech at the American Museum of Natural History with opening remarks by UN Special Envoy Michael R. Bloomberg and Museum President Sean M. Decatur 🌏💚.

Secretary-General Guterres speech highlighted the urgency with which we need to be addressing climate change and, set out what companies and countries – particularly the G7 and the G20 – need to do over the next eighteen months to salvage humanity`s chances of a liveable future.

Like the Bleeding heart (Homalanthus novo-guineensis), a pioneer species in rainforest regeneration, we aim to preserve and protect the Daintree, and we choose to grow and plant Homalanthus novo-guineensis as one of hundreds of other native species, reforesting precious tropical ecosystems. Your support is critical in ensuring the continuing operations of the Daintree’s largest nursery 🌱🌳🌳🌳.

Donate today: www.rainforestrescue.org.au/nursery-appeal-thrive and share with your family and friends (link in bio) 💚.

#CritterCorner: The Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii)`s role in the dispersal of rainforest fruit is well documented as it is the only animal able to ingest the larger rainforest fruit whole. Once the fruit has passed through the bird most of the fleshy part of the fruit has been removed from the seed leaving it ready to germinate in a lovely pile of compost 💩🌱🌳.

Learn more fascinating facts on our website.
