It’s official: Lot 24 Cape Tribulation Road is safe from development.
YOU DID IT!
Thanks to you, our community of Rainforest Rescuers & Rainforest Guardians who believe in the importance of nature over development, this beautiful rainforest property will be protected from development and will continue to provide essential habitat for the many local endemic and endangered species, like the Southern Cassowary. Together we are Protecting Rainforests Forever!
Lot 24 Cape Tribulation Road is strategically located to increase an established wildlife corridor and connect protected rainforest, this property connects to the Daintree National Park / World Heritage Area through prior rescues. This purchase and rescue has further extended the Rainforest Rescue Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor.
This beautiful rainforest is near prior rescues and connects directly to the National Park. It is in close proximity to 10 properties protected by Rainforest Rescue that form the Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor and the Milky Pine Wildlife Refuge; its protection further enhances these areas.
Rare and endangered species such as the Southern Cassowary and Bennett’s Tree-Kangaroo are endemic to the area, and ancient primitive flowering plants abound.
Buying this property extends a priceless and important wildlife and biodiversity nature corridor, significantly building upon existing Rainforest Rescue protected areas. This buyback is of vital importance and prevents rainforest destructive development.
“Acquiring this property augments the integrity of the wildlife corridor we have already established through lots 27, 29, 30, 32 and 33. With a significantly high ecological score we recommend that Rainforest Rescue urgently acquire this property.”
— Allen Sheather, Rainforest Rescue’s Daintree Ecological Advisor with Barbara Maslen.
