How YOU can help

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.

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.

#ForestFacts - Here's some #FunFacts about why the Daintree Rainforest is so special, courtesy of our friends at @DaintreeDiscovery⠀
🌳 The Daintree Rainforest is estimated to be 180 million years old⠀
🌳 This tropical rainforest ecosystem is one of the most complex on earth. Its plant diversity and structural complexity is unrivalled on the Australian continent and represents the origins of our more familiar ‘Australian’ flora⠀
🌳 From a total of 19 primitive flowering plant families on Earth, 12 families are represented in the Daintree region making the highest concentration of these plants worldwide⠀
🌳 This natural wonder is home to thousands of species of birds and other wildlife including 30% of Australia’s frog, reptile and marsupial species in Australia, 65% of the country’s bat and butterfly species as well as 18% of all bird species and 12,000 insect species!⠀
🌳 The Kuku Yalanji people have lived in this area for thousands of years and their songs and legends continue to give special meaning to this landscape today⠀

#CritterCorner - Turns out, despite being called the Common Mistfrog (Litoria rheocola), we're not so common anymore, and this is one of the reasons #RainforestRescueAu love to highlight the importance of the flora and fauna found in our rainforests. Listed as endangered, the humans tell me that it's been hard to pinpoint the reason why our numbers have dwindled so heavily in recent times – with chytrid fungus thought to be the culprit.⠀
My family & I can reach 3.8cm in length and like to watch our waistlines (we like to keep quite trim to highlight our long arms and legs). We have fully webbed feet, but our hands are only partly webbed.⠀
We're endemic to the Wet Tropics, so next time you're in the area listen out for the unique (and very nasal sounding) 'wreek wreek wreek' and make sure you say 'Hi!' 🐸⠀

#CritterCorner - You may not believe me, but Australia still has dragons (just not the fire breathing type). I'm a Boyd’s Forest Dragon (Lophosaurus boydii, formerly Hypsilurus boydii), a rainforest dwelling lizard that is endemic to the Wet Tropics of North Queensland 🐉⠀
Of the two rainforest dragons in Australia, we're the biggest with a body length of approx. 15cm and a tail twice the length of that! We have spiky protrusions, large cheek scales and a yellow dewlap, which leave us looking like mini versions of the dragons you grew up with in fairy tales!⠀
We're pretty active during the day, and you might just find one of us hanging out on a tree trunk at about head height - if you approach, we'll likely just slowly creep around to the other side of the tree in hopes you don't notice us moving. We rely on camouflage for protection from predators.⠀

#CritterCorner - Hello there! I am a Musky Rat-Kangaroo (Hypsiprymnodon moschatus) – the smallest kangaroo in existence, weighing in at only 620g. If you walk quietly through Rainforest in Tropical North Queensland in the early morning or evening, keep your eyes on the forest floor, as this is where you will most likely spot us. We are endemic to this area, meaning we are native and restricted to the tropical Rainforest.⠀

We used to have 4 similar-looking, related species, but we are the only survivors. We have survived in Australian forests for over 20 million years and have managed to retain the ancient characteristics of our extinct ancestors, such as opposable thumbs on our hind feet used for climbing, our prehensile tails used to grasp or hold objects, unspecialised teeth, digestive tracts, diet and our habit of birthing twins or triplets. ⠀

Our favourite foods are Rainforest fruits and invertebrates. We are known to hide individual fruits and seeds in various locations to ensure good supply and sometimes we hoard, hiding more than we need. We hide our food hauls by burying them, then covering them with leaves and twigs so the location remains known only to us – this protects the seeds from being eaten by other animals and improves the chance of seed germination – in fact some species rely on us as this is the only way they can reach germination. This is why we are so important, like the Cassowary and Spectacled Flying-Fox, we are Rainforest Gardeners!⠀

Thanks to our friends at @AustralianGeographic for the info and to @TimGrahamPhotography for the beautiful photo 🙏 🙏 ⠀

Like many of you, we never thought that we’d actually experience a global pandemic. It’s scary, it’s sad, it’s disruptive, it’s surprising in many ways, and from some perspectives, it’s our worst nightmare. Whilst together we are all affected in various ways through this extremely challenging time, we must continue to create the world we believe in. We must protect the world we want to see and ensure it exists for our children and the future. We aren’t letting the pandemic stop us. In fact, we’re not slowing down.⠀

We have a very unique and special opportunity to buy Lot 24 Cape Tribulation Road. Visit our website (link in bio) for full details.⠀
