PLANT A RAINFOREST
We believe Trees are the Answer
Rainforests cover only 6% of the Earth’s surface yet they contain over 50% of the world’s animal and plant species. They also play a critical role in climate regulation by stimulating rainfall and producing oxygen to sustain life. Over three-quarters of Australia’s rainforests have been cleared since European settlement. Only fragments remain across northern Australia and down the east coast to Tasmania.
Every second an area of Rainforest the size of a football field is destroyed, with devastating consequences for creatures, plants, the environment and us humans that depend upon it.
We believe trees are the answer.
Together, we can Protect Rainforests Forever.
Rainforest Rescue’s Plant a Rainforest project replants previously cleared areas of rainforest and establishes habitat for the plants and animals endemic to that specific ecosystem. This protects the precious biodiversity including thousands of wildlife species.
Rainforest biodiversity maintains the atmosphere upon which all of humanity and all animal life depends, as well as generating rainfall and regulating our climate. Rainforests also provide potential new medicines to benefit humankind.
It’s Time to Grow
Our Native Rainforest Nursery in the Daintree propagates and grows all the rainforest trees for our Daintree lowland revegetation projects and our Plant a Rainforest Project. Seeds are collected from the Daintree Lowland Rainforest between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation and the trees are replanted in the same area.
Your support of our Plant a Rainforest projects makes a huge difference to the survival of thousands of species of flora & fauna inhabiting thousands of hectares of Rainforest.
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!
