About the Canopy Awards

The Rainforest Rescue Canopy Awards creates a platform to promote the beauty and fragility of the rainforests and their unique ecology and biodiversity. Inviting photographers to contribute their perspectives provides a richer tapestry upon which to focus our intentions for both the Daintree’s forever protection, as well as the protection of rainforests and rainforest creatures all over the world.
Join us to support these Awards, and reach more people who care about the long-term future of these most precious ecosystems. It’s our Nature to protect, after all.

Enter ANY photo, of ANY rainforest, taken at ANY time.
