The Daintree Rainforest

Daintree Vision 2040 – to buy back all remaining threatened rainforest properties in the Daintree

The Daintree is Australia’s LARGEST rainforest, arguably the most biodiverse environment on the planet, compared to the Amazon at 55 million years. Continuously evolving and growing, living and breathing for 180 MILLION YEARS, the Daintree is now under threat of being severely degraded.

One of the most significant regional ecosystems in the world, the Daintree has international conservation significance. There are some 180 properties that Rainforest Rescue intends to buy back, replant and protect by 2040.

Although the clock is ticking, there’s still time for us to achieve this vision and preserve this critically important region. We believe the Daintree Rainforest should be protected for future generations so they too can be inspired and amazed by its incredible beauty and biodiversity. Thus the Daintree will continue to host and nurture biodiversity, mitigate climate change and provide important resources to study and learn from, including nature’s systems, treatments and cures for humans.

Perhaps the best reason to protect the Daintree is simply to stop its destruction! Until Nature has rights that are recognised under Australian law it’s up to the Rainforest Guardians to be the voice and advocates for Nature Herself.

The choice is stark. Secure these rare, living bio-diverse communities, or face the prospect of losing unique flora and fauna species forever.

Rainforest Rescue has an ambitious plan for the future of the Daintree Rainforest. We intend to buy back more properties than ever before and we urgently NEED YOUR HELP to make this vision a reality.

To buy back all of these properties, we need to raise about $15 million, a drop in the bucket compared to the irreplaceable loss if we don’t join together and act NOW! Please join us to make Daintree 2040 vision a reality in our lifetimes, and for our children’s children.



When you give generously, you become part of a committed team of individuals who collectively are helping to preserve some of the most biodiverse habitats and the species that live within them on this planet. Become a Rainforest Rescuer today!
