We purchase rainforest properties to protect their genuine biodiversity and conservation values. We then initiate the process of further protection through the official creation of Nature Refuges, which protect the properties from potential abuse or misuse in the future and are attached to the title.

Rattler Range, Tasmania

In addition to the Daintree properties protected by Rainforest Rescue, Forest Lodge in Tasmania is a stunning property. It is located on the Rattler Range and is surrounded on three sides by the Mount Victoria State Forest Reserve. This has been designated by the Tasmanian government as a conservation zone. The property was once one of a number of land parcels owned by the timber company Gunns Ltd. but became available for purchase in June 2010 when Gunns Ltd auctioned off 28,000 hectares of land in Tasmania. Rainforest Rescue responded to the request of one of its supporters to investigate the potential to buy some of this land and protect it forever.

The dominant trees on the property are old-growth Myrtle Beech and Sassafras, a feature being the very large number and size of Soft Tree Ferns (Dicksonia Antarctica) that are known in Tasmania as Man Ferns. The Reserve provides suitable habitat for the Tasmania Wedge-tailed Eagle and the Tasmania Devil — an animal that is in great danger of extinction from habitat loss and facial tumour disease. It may also be home to other rare and endangered animals such as the Spotted-Tail Quoll, which is the second largest of the world’s surviving marsupial carnivores.
