Extend this Wildlife Corridor - Protect Rainforests Forever

Rainforest Rescue supporters have rescued 32 properties in Australia's profoundly biodiverse Lowland Daintree Rainforest - an area that is largely unprotected and at constant risk of development. Through creating viable wildlife corridors and expanding protected habitat, supporters like you are making a real and important difference for Nature and the myriad species of the area. Every year the number of rescued properties climbs and the threat to the Daintree shrinks overall. Rainforests like this are irreplaceable. Your support is essential to protect it. You protect rainforests forever.

Endangered Southern Cassowary - Martin Stringer PhotographyThis next property represents a remarkable opportunity for all of us. Lot 30 Cape Tribulation Rd, is incredibly rich in wildlife. Here, orange-footed scrub fowl dart into the understory, crossing paths with endangered cassowaries that forage here. Ulysses butterflies flit past and the call of Wompoo pigeons resonate through the trees. With this density of coverage, it's also sure that you'll find canopy dwellers like Bennett's Tree Kangaroo and floor dwellers like the Musky Rat-Kangaroo - both at risk.

Our Daintree rainforest experts, Allen Sheather and Barbara Maslen, evaluate our properties before we rescue them, ensuring that the biological diversity and forest condition is up to par with state requirements for qualification to become protected nature reserves. They scored this new block very high ecologically, with over 120 rainforest species, including many with very limited distributions. It also scores 5 out of 5 for its intact rainforest canopy. This is a great opportunity for the rainforest - and for you.

Ensuring Lot 30's protection will serve to expand our Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor, with it's uninterrupted connectivity and undisturbed forest, adjoining previously rescued Lot 29, linked to the Daintree National Park. Another Rainforest Rescue reserve across the road connects to a private nature refuge, further expanding protection. 

This area is at real risk of development. I was just there and locals informed me that there were "house pads popping up all over the place" - and I saw a bulldozer setting one up. Lot 30 is reached by an access road that is cleared but not yet sealed. Roads provide access to development that would reduce this precious forest to holiday homes or worse. Ultimately, we plan to close off this road and replant it, bringing back the full forest canopy and providing a haven for plants, animals, fungi and insects alike. But before that's going to happen we have to rescue this property.

Of the 32 properties saved by you and fellow Rainforest Rescuers, 23 are protected with covenants stripping development rights and protecting them forever, two have been gifted to the National Park, and we are working with the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection to protect the remaining properties by adding them to our family of Nature Refuges. Rainforest Rescue is committed to Protecting Rainforests Forever!

It’s vital that we keep up the momentum and do all we can to protect the Daintree, Australia's most precious rainforest and ancient seat of profound biodiversity. Together we can do this. Together, we are doing this.

Please join us in protecting this vital habitat, this precious rainforest, for future generations.

Please, help us achieve our goal. Make a meaningful contribution today!

Thank you!
