Rainforest Rescue has been protecting and restoring rainforests since 1999. We do this by purchasing properties of high conservation value rainforest and protecting their biodiversity. We also restore rainforest through planting, maintenance and weed removal.

About us
Rainforest Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation that has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since March 1999 by providing opportunities for individuals and businesses to Protect Rainforests Forever.

Our projects re-establish rainforests through planting, maintenance and restoration programs, as well as purchasing and protecting high conservation value rainforest and preserving its biodiversity.

Our vision
To Protect Rainforests Forever.

Our mission
Rescue vulnerable rainforests by buying threatened properties;
Restore damaged and fragmented habitat through reforestation;
Conserve the biodiversity and cultural heritage of Rainforest; and
Learn from the forest, sharing and raising awareness.

Our structure
Rainforest Rescue is an Australian Company Limited by Guarantee, managed by a Board of Directors who contribute their service on a voluntary basis. Our ABN is 61 086 885 154 and our ACN is 086 885 154. Read more about our directors.

Our staff
Our headquarters in Mullumbimby, NSW hosts the core team and administration function. We also have a conservation team in the Daintree to undertake land management and run our native nursery, and a Partnership Manager in our Sydney satellite office. In addition to staff and interns we have the support of many volunteers. Read more about our team.

Rainforest Rescue was established from a community wish to protect rainforest forever. We are committed to building relationships with individuals, philanthropists, businesses and grant-making organisations through which the majority of our funding is sourced.

We are listed on the Australian government’s Register of Environmental Organisations which provided us with tax-deductible gift recipient status, enabling Australian residents to make tax-deductible donations to the organisation.

We are also registered with the Australian Charities & Not-for-profits Commission and a Member of the Fundraising Institute of Australia.

Rainforest Rescue acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands on which our organisation is located, where we work and where we live. We respect ancestors and Elders past, present and emerging.
