Protecting the Unprotected

Time is short and it’s vital to act quickly to Protect Rainforests Forever.

The Lowland Daintree Rainforest lies between the Wet Tropics of Queensland and Great Barrier Reef UNESCO World Heritage Areas and has a vital role in connecting these two significant ecosystems. 

The recent bleaching of significant areas of the Great Barrier Reef is a striking reminder of the impact of human activity on our ecosystems. Drastic action needs to be taken to help build resilience against these threats and the potentially catastrophic long-term impacts of climate change. Creating permanent rainforest corridors, connecting protected landscapes, gives the unique flora and fauna of the Daintree a better chance of survival and protects river catchments flowing onto the Great Barrier Reef.

Recently, Rainforest Rescue identified three priority properties under threat. With your support, we managed to rescue one of these, but, sadly, a second property was sold for development as we campaigned for its protection. The third property is for sale on the open market, but in danger of being lost. You can help secure this land and protect the rainforest forever.

With a lineage of over 70 million years the Daintree is critically important as an ‘engine-room’ of evolution. It is the largest area of the wet lowland tropical rainforest remaining in Australia, protecting both the ecological and evolutionary processes that result in diversification, adaptation and survival. At this time of unprecedented change, we have to act now to ensure that this unique and special habitat survives for future generations.
