Rainforest Rescue is a registered not-for-profit that has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since 1999. Their vision is to ‘protect rainforests forever’ by:
For many decades, the globally significant yet unprotected lowland Daintree Rainforest has suffered significant developmental land clearing and degradation. Continuously evolving for as many as 180 million years, the Daintree is the most ancient rainforest world-wide by far. It must be protected, forever. It’s an extremely unique, biodiverse wildlife haven, home to species found nowhere else on the planet, except, sometimes, in fossil records.
From threatened cassowaries to primitive flowering plants, the Daintree is an irreplaceable conservation refuge with 395 endemic species listed as rare or threatened.
Rainforest Rescue has rescued 40 Daintree properties and there are some 150 more properties that they must rescue, restore and protect by 2050. Since inception, Rainforest Rescue has planted 325,000+ trees to restore rainforests. They also intend to facilitate significantly increased restoration through the provision of up to 150,000 trees annually through the New Nursery and our growing partnerships with Jabalbina, GreenFleet, QTFN and Douglas Shire Council.
