BIG Work Happening in The Big Scrub Rainforest!

Dear Friends,

Rainforest Rescue has been working with the Madhima Gulgan to implement a range of revegetation and regeneration projects on land located within the Big Scrub (please see our website at for more information on the Big Scrub). The team has planted 1,620 trees in the project area over January-March period. The trees are all locally propagated for the subtropical rainforest and a stand of koala food trees were put in to add to an existing koala corridor. Unfortunately, Koala’s have just been listed as ‘vulnerable to extinction’ in Queensland, New South Wales and Australia’s Capital Territory under national environmental law.

Rainforest Rescue has also been busy preparing for the annual Big Scrub Rainforest Day event.  Co-founded by Rainforest Rescue with the Big Scrub Rainforest Landcare Group, the Big Scrub Rainforest Day has grown to become Australia’s  largest annual landcare education event. People travel from all over southeast  Queensland, northern New South Wales and beyond to join the festivities and  discover practical ways they can help the environment.  Here is a link to a video capturing some of the highlights of last year's event--

***Site preparation, supervision of tree planters and maintenance will be undertaken by the Madhima Gulgan Aboriginal Association’s Bush Regeneration Team***

Thank you for your support friends!  We look forward to your continued interest and help, and hope that you may be able to help Rainforest Rescue further by forwarding our project around to friends via Facebook, Twitter and so on.  Every little bit helps!!
