Seeds of Positive Change

By Kristin Canning & Sumeena Keshow | Philanthropy Executives

Thank you for adopting rainforest and assisting Rainforest Rescue us to purchase and protect vulnerable areas of tropical rainforest from development forever! Your support is making a significant impact assisting Rainforest Rescue to make great progress on large scale rainforest restoration.  Your precious contributions are propagating rainforest seedlings which are tirelessly planted on Daintree lands by our staff and volunteers –  in the last six months to see 8,288 trees planted on Lot 96 in Cape Tribulation, Daintree! We are pleased to report that with this number of tree planted this year, all areas requiring regeneration on Lot 96 Cape Tribulation, Daintree, are now fully planted out with matured seedlings and this stage of its restoration is now complete!

In May this year, volunteers travelled from far and wide to participate in Rainforest Rescue’s annual community tree planting weekend, which saw over 2,000 of the 8,288 trees planted on Lot 96 – a tremendous effort! Many of the 20,000 seedlings propagated annually at the Rainforest Rescue Daintree Nursery certainly got put to good use in this planting session!  Joe Riechl, our Land Manager in the Daintree, tells us that “…(the seedlings) have grown so much, some are almost waist high now.” After a lot of watering and weed control since May, the little rainforest trees are now thriving! Thank you so much for helping Rainforest Rescue to reach this wonderful milestone for Lot 96!

Such significant environmental restoration simply would not be possible without your continued support. The reason the regeneration of this land is so vitally important is because the Daintree Rainforest is home to 12 of the world's 19 primitive plant families, the highest concentration on earth! Overall, it maintains an amazing variety of plants and animals, including 122 rare, threatened and endangered species. Many of these species are 'endemic' to the region meaning that they are found nowhere else on the planet.

Your support helps to protect these beautiful species! Every tree planted in the ground to protect these extraordinary species’ habitat in the Daintree costs $10 and this helps secure a bio-diverse future for this unique rainforest! You are assisting us to undertake this important conservation work and plant these trees. It would not be possible without your generous support. Thank you.
