Helping Hands Needed to Plant 1,000 Trees
Supporters will join Rainforest Rescue in planting 1,000 native trees at the Nightwings Project this Saturday to help recreate unique and internationally important rainforest habitat.
The Daintree hosts some of the oldest and most ecologically diverse rainforest ecosystems in the world, and is of international conservation importance. David Attenborough recently said that the Daintree Rainforest is “a worldwide treasure that needs to be protected at all costs”.
This Saturday’s Community Tree Planting Day will be held at the Nightwings site which backs onto the Dagmar Range of the Daintree National Park, north of Mossman. The local community is invited to attend to plant native rainforest trees which have been grown from seeds collected in the Daintree.
“Over 11,000 trees have been planted on the site over the past few months and we wanted to celebrate the completion of the first stage of this exciting reforestation project. We’re looking forward to planting the final 1,000 trees with the local community.”
Julian Gray, Rainforest Rescue CEO
The planting is on Saturday 28th May, starting at 8am.
