It’s our nature to protect and we’re on a mission to Protect Rainforests Forever
Rainforest Rescue has been strategically buying back at-risk rainforest properties and restoring degraded rainforest in the Daintree since 1999. Our primary focus is to increase connectivity, preserve biodiversity and protect rainforests forever. Learn more about our work below.
Protect a Rainforest
Our ‘Protect a Rainforest’ project focuses on purchasing rainforest blocks for conservation and protecting them forever, increasing connectivity and protecting biodiversity.
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.

If we are going to help mitigate climate change by drawing down more carbon, then we need to plant more trees – it really is as simple as that – #TreesAreTheAnswer

The Daintree Rainforest is home to an amazing variety of plants and animals. Many of these are ‘endemic’ to the region meaning that they are found nowhere else on the planet.
The World Heritage Area does not extend to all of the Daintree with much of the coastal lowland tropical rainforest remaining unprotected from development & fragmentation.
History of Development
