LOT 41 IS A STUNNING EXAMPLE OF INTACT DAINTREE RAINFOREST

Because of you, it will be protected forever.

Thanks to your support, we have doubled the size of the protected area in the Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor.

The Daintree is one of the most significant ecosystems in the world. It is a living museum and a place of profound and unique beauty which we must protect and conserve. This region of the wet tropics contains some of the greatest biodiversity of flora, fauna and includes many of the most unique animals in the world.

Lot 41 Cape Tribulation Rd, Kimberley is a stunning example of intact Daintree rainforest… 

The 18.6 ha property is like being in a giant cathedral. It’s a place of spiritual connectivity. A place where you feel more in touch with your own nature—our true, spiritual nature—and in utter awe of nature’s beauty.

The previous owner of Lot 41, Tony, has lived here for over 20 years. Sadly, his wife Cheryll passed away in 2022.

For many years, Tony and Cheryll were working to make their property a nature refuge, however, with Cheryll’s passing, Tony came to us and wanted to ensure that the property is protected forever when, one day, he passes away.

Under the terms of the purchase, Tony will have the option of continuing to live on the property and be its custodian, effectively continuing the legacy of both Cheryll and himself.

We are truly humbled by this.

BY HELPING US TO PURCHASE THIS PROPERTY YOU HAVE DOUBLED THE AMOUNT OF CONSERVED LAND IN THE CAPE KIMBERLEY WILDLIFE CORRIDOR.

Lot 41 is ideally located right next to the National Park and is adjacent to other Rainforest Rescue properties in the Milky Pine Refuge, which is within the Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor. This purchase has further contributed to these properties and enhanced connectivity by expanding the refuge and wildlife corridor.

This purchase is history in the making, both in the significant capital involved, and how this biodiversity-rich property is a significant acquisition for the nature corridor and for the overall environmental protection of the Daintree.

Below is a map showing the existing corridor with Lot 41 outlined in aqua, Rainforest Rescue refuges in red, and other purchased properties in purple.

Thank you for helping us secure Lot 41 and expand the wildlife corridor.

It’s in our nature to protect. With the help of Rainforest Rescuers – people like you – we are significantly protecting pristine habitat for Nature and achieving strong wins for biodiversity. Visit our Properties Rescued page for a full list of properties protected by Rainforest Rescue since 1999.

We’re always testing, trying and looking at new ways in which we can help improve our methods - efficient, positive outcomes are what the Daintree needs if we are going to be able to restore it and protect it FOREVER. And with the environmental challenges we’re facing, this can’t happen soon enough.

So, right now, we’re testing two approaches with their own methods, benefits and challenges:

1️⃣. The Spacious Path, which requires less resources and time spent maintaining the plantings until they mature; however this method will take longer before a canopy closure takes place.

2️⃣. The Dense Thicket, where the emphasis lies on maximising tree density to outcompete weeds and achieve rapid canopy closure. This method requires manual weeding until natural competition among trees starts to take place.

By documenting and analysing these methods over the course of two years, we’re aiming to identify what will enable the fastest and strongest growing rainforests. As well as purchasing and protecting more of the fractured Daintree in the process.

Learn more about each of the pathways on our website: rainforestrescue.org.au/what-does-it-take-to-rescue-a-rainforest 🌳🌳🌳.

Did you know that Far North Queensland is one of the most bat-diverse corners of the continent?

Long-time friends of Rainforest Rescue, Bats and Trees Society of Cairns (BATSOC) 🦇🦇🦇, shared their perspectives on the importance of bats to the Wet Tropics Rainforest. 

In this heart-warming conversation with Maree Treadwell Kerr and Sera Steves, captured at Ecofiesta 2024, hear how they first became bat fans, how Branden fell in love with bats and why flying foxes are inspiring cocktails. 

There is a common goal of caring for wildlife and the environment, coupled with a desire to deepen our understanding of the relationships between animals, plants and the habitats they live in 💚.

Head over to our YouTube channel youtube.com/@rainforestrescueau to hear more.

#CritterCorner: Have you ever heard the Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii)? If you have, you will never forget one of the lowest frequency sounds made by any bird 🐦👂.

If you`ve ever watched a cassowary "call", with its head tilted down toward the ground and the whole body shuddering as the sound is created, you`ll know that this powerful bird employs its entire body to communicate. When you hear this sound in the wild, you ‘feel’ the sound as it vibrates through the air. Sometimes it`s hard to believe this is a bird`s call.

Last Wednesday, on #WorldEnvironmentDay, UN Secretary-General Guterres delivered a pivotal speech at the American Museum of Natural History with opening remarks by UN Special Envoy Michael R. Bloomberg and Museum President Sean M. Decatur 🌏💚.

Secretary-General Guterres speech highlighted the urgency with which we need to be addressing climate change and, set out what companies and countries – particularly the G7 and the G20 – need to do over the next eighteen months to salvage humanity`s chances of a liveable future.

Like the Bleeding heart (Homalanthus novo-guineensis), a pioneer species in rainforest regeneration, we aim to preserve and protect the Daintree, and we choose to grow and plant Homalanthus novo-guineensis as one of hundreds of other native species, reforesting precious tropical ecosystems. Your support is critical in ensuring the continuing operations of the Daintree’s largest nursery 🌱🌳🌳🌳.

Donate today: www.rainforestrescue.org.au/nursery-appeal-thrive and share with your family and friends (link in bio) 💚.

#CritterCorner: The Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii)`s role in the dispersal of rainforest fruit is well documented as it is the only animal able to ingest the larger rainforest fruit whole. Once the fruit has passed through the bird most of the fleshy part of the fruit has been removed from the seed leaving it ready to germinate in a lovely pile of compost 💩🌱🌳.
