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!

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

2024 ANNUAL COMMUNITY TREE PLANTING DAY

Rainforest Rescue’s 2024 Annual Community Tree Planting Day is scheduled for Saturday 18 May 2024 and you’re invited!
2024 also marks our 25th birthday, and we’re so excited to celebrate with you.
An event not to be missed!

Welcome

HANDOVER OF DIWAN RAINFOREST NURSERY 

In November 2023, Rainforest Rescue gifted the Diwan Rainforest Nursery to Eastern Kuku Yalanji Traditional Owners organisation, Jabalbina Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation (JYAC), in support of their propagation and restoration goals to heal country.

Welcome

`The weather conditions following Cyclone Jasper devastated the Far North Queensland region and the local communities. The area is still recovering, and people are going to continue to need our help - there are several local initiatives you can support.

Read more online: www.rainforestrescue.org.au/cyclone-jasper (visit the News section on our website) 💚.

Another great way to support our local community is to visit the Daintree. Now, as local businesses begin to reopen and local attractions are becoming accessible again, we`re excited to welcome travellers and adventurers back to the stunning beaches and magical forests of the Wet Tropics region 💚.

#CritterCorner: Tree kangaroos are unique macropods found only in the rainforests of Far North Queensland and Papua New Guinea. In Australia we have two endemic species, the Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo (Dendrolagus bennettianus) and the Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo (Dendrolagus lumholtzi), that live in the rainforest of Far North Queensland and NOWHERE ELSE in the world.

They are pretty special!

Interestingly, Lumholtz Tree Kangaroos are not nocturnal and they are active day and night (cathemeral) and will cross roads and paddocks to find new territories. Lumholtz Tree Kangaroos are endemic to Wet Tropics Rainforests in far north Qld - south of the Daintree River down to Cardwell ranges, found mostly on the Atherton Tablelands and classified as Near Threatened (NT) on the IUCN Red List.

Discover more about Bennett`s and Lumholtz Tree Kangaroos on our website: rainforestrescue.org.au/critter-corner-tree-kangaroos (link in bio) 💚.

Alternatively, you can get in touch with our friends at @treeroorescue: www.treeroorescue.org.au

Businesses can power change. And many are 💚.

Together with our business partners, we have rescued hundreds of thousands of square metres of unprotected Daintree Rainforest and planted as many trees to repair damaged lowland rainforest. And we love talking about our extraordinary supporters like @Klorane, hearing more about what drives their conservation efforts.

Together with @kloranebotanicalfoundation, we sprouted 50,000 seedlings at our new native nursery, reclaimed 1.8 Ha of Lot 41 Cape Tribulation Rd, and, in a delightful twist, watched Arnaud Vaillant, Klorane`s Chief of Finance and Operations Australia, get his hands dirty and put trees into the ground alongside our community.

We chatted with Arnaud about the culture of sustainability and environmental responsibility, Green Advocate for Australia and a lot more, all of which you can find on our website: rainforestrescue.org.au/personal-commitment-collective-impact-with-kloranes-arnaud-vaillant (head over to the News section) 💚.

Your business can support Rainforest Rescue’s Partners for Protection program in a variety of ways with tier partnerships, sponsorships, company events, workplace giving, monthly gifts and direct donations: rainforestrescue.org.au/businesses (link in bio)💚.

#CritterCorner: Shortly after hatching, baby cassowaries are able to walk almost immediately, and have long, pale yellowish-brown legs and no helmet-like casque on the tops of their heads yet.

They are born striped and between 3 and 6 months juvenile cassowaries begin to lose their stripes, gaining a more uniform brown appearance.

By 3-4 years of age, they will have gained their full adult colours.

Young cassowaries follow their cassowary father for about 9 - 18 months to learn the ropes, before facing the world on their own. Well, the Daintree, which is their world 💚.

The Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii) is listed as `Endangered` under the Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.

Help us protect their world: rainforestrescue.org.au/rainforest-guardians (link in bio) 💚.

It`s International Day of Forests 🌳🌳🌳.

We may not always think of our forests and rainforests when we take a sip of water or make a shopping list in a notebook, take medicine or build a home but our reliance is undeniable.

With the help of the 2024 `Forests and innovation` theme, we want to acknowledge and celebrate the resilience of the Daintree rainforest, one of the most universally valuable natural areas on Earth.

The Daintree has been continuously evolving and growing, living and breathing for over 180 million years, it is a unique and remarkable wonder that must be protected forever 💚.

Take a moment to transport yourself to the Daintree this morning - hit play to listen to the soundscape of the rainforest 💚.

#CritterCorner: Macleay`s Honeyeater (Xanthotis macleayanus) is a beautiful honeyeater endemic to Australia❤️.

If you are in Northern Queensland, from Cooktown to the southern end of the Paluma Range, keep an eye on the sky as you may spot these beauties amongst tropical dry forests and/or tropical moist lowland forests, probably chasing insects and/or enjoying some wild fruit, while assisting the forest flora though pollination.

Learn more on our website: https://www.rainforestrescue.org.au/critter-corner-macleays-honeyeater/ (🔗 in bio) and make sure to send it to a friend as well - share the knowledge!
