Challenge

The World Heritage Listed tropical rainforest in Australia contains one of the highest numbers of plant and animal species that are threatened with extinction in the world. The Australian Rainforest Foundation is dedicated to habitat rehabilitation, education and research. Land purchase will protect these ancient plants and create wildlife corridors for continued species survival. The rainforest will benefit from this land protection and extension by maintaining its mega biodiversity.

Solution

Purchasing land will ensure its protection as a nature refuge. Extending and repairing the rainforest by planting the right tree in the right place will provide ongoing habitat for rainforest fauna.

Long-Term Impact

Preserving this ancient rainforest will give future generations the prospect of new medicines. Protecting this forest will store thousands of tons of carbon in the forest's biomass, and re-vegetating cleared land will give us oxygen.
