In the Daintree
With the successful rescue of Lot 30 Cape Tribulation Rd, we have expanded a critical wildlife corridor.
Every time we're successful in rescuing a rainforest property that means more habitat and protection for local flora and fauna.
Remember, the Daintree is the most ancient of the world's rainforests. It is Australia's largest rainforest and most biodiverse. And it's magnificent. Everything we do together helps to protect and ensure this rainforest continues to thrive.
Next Rescue – Lot 27 Cape Tribulation Rd
Rare and endangered species like the Southern Cassowary and the Spectacled Flying-fox are found here, amidst ancient and primitive flowering plants.
Conservation work in the Daintree supports this ancient forest ecosystem that has been evolving longer than any other in the world – by tens of millions of years – and is Australia’s largest and most biodiverse.
With the help of Rainforest Rescuers – people like you – we’ve rescued 2 priceless rainforest properties in the last year, significantly protecting pristine habitat for Nature and achieving a strong win for biodiversity. In addition to Lot 15 Thornton Peak Drive, Lot 30 Cape Tribulation Rd was successfully rescued because of people like you who recognise the power and importance of conservation.
We are successful together.
Wildlife Corridors Protect and Connect
Lot 27 Cape Tribulation Rd, like Lot 30, borders the National Park and is adjacent to the Cape Kimberley Wildlife Corridor – we know this area well. Because of the connectivity to the National Park and World Heritage Area, and with a lack of protection on several of the properties still outside of the refuge, this property is high priority for rescue and protection. We have it on good authroity that Lot 27 will likely qualify for inclusion into this protected corridor and is a real win for Nature, as well as for everyone who stands for conservation.
This dense, intact rainforest conjures up images of an ancient world, before subdivisions and development became a threat to Nature and our common future. Thick leaf litter, rich and humid air carrying the scent of flowers and mulch, the sounds of Wompoo pigeons calling to their mates and parrots screeching captivate the senses. Massive trees, twisting vines, a diversity of fungus, insects and beautiful butterflies – massive, vivid blue Ulysses butterflies – and more, inspire us to protect this haven for Nature. Cassowary droppings show this is a regular path on their foraging journeys through this habitat shared with other endangered and threatened species, like the Musky Rat-Kangaroo and the Spectacled Fruit Bat. Its location, dynamic structure and biodiversity make it an ideal candidate for nature refuge status and Wildlife Corridor inclusion. It scores very high on our ecological assessment and needs your help to protect it.
This property is most definitely at risk of development and is currently on the open market with a big FOR SALE sign on it.
The real heroes behind these stories of successful conservation outcomes are our supporters – you and others like you who you know that this strategy works. Your contributions directly rescue and protect Nature in Australia’s largest, most biodiverse rainforest.
Your generous gift makes a real and important difference that benefits threatened habitat, water catchment and wildlife.
This property is our next step on this journey of conservation and protection. We will keep rescuing rainforest, block by block, and protect it forever, but only with your help.
Rainforest Rescue is committed to Protecting Rainforests Forever!
Together we're making it happen.
