Supporting Indigeneous Rainforest Conservation

Dear Friends & Supporters

Thank you for your support of our project to restore the Big Scrub Rainforest.

Rainforest Rescue has been restoring the Big Scrub Rainforest Remnants since 1999 and in 2008 we joined with the Madhima Gulgan Community Association and their bush regeneration team to continue this important work. This partnership has made terrific headways not only for the rainforest, but for the local Indigeneous people employed to care for country they share a personal and historical connection with.

Over the past five years, this small team of workers have planted close to 20,000 trees on public and private areas within the Byron Shire. Team members have also been engaged in ongoing weed removal.

Employed as professional bush regenerators, team members build up extensive practical field experience preparing planting sites, removing weeds, planting trees and maintaining sites. Each has completed, or is working towards, a Certificate IV in Conservation Land Management.

Due to a realignment of our conservation priorities we will no longer be continuing with our Big Scrub Plant a Rainforest. We have instead shifted our conservation focus to Far North Queensland Australia and the Asia-Pacific Region.
