It’s official: Lot 18 Cape Kimberley Road is safe from development

 

YOU DID IT

Thanks to you, our community of Rainforest Rescuers & Rainforest Guardians who believe in the importance of nature over development, this beautiful rainforest property will be protected from development and will continue to provide essential habitat for the many local endemic and endangered species, like the Southern Cassowary.

Together we are Protecting Rainforests Forever!

AT RAINFOREST RESCUE IT’S NOT OFTEN THAT A SINGLE PROPERTY COMES UP THAT LEAVES ALL OF US SPEECHLESS, YET LOT 18 CAPE KIMBERLEY ROAD IS SUCH A PROPERTY. BECAUSE OF YOUR SUPPORT, IT WILL NOW BE PROTECTED FOREVER.

We worked for over a year to secure this rescue and, after a false start where our asking price offer was refused and then a call for offers was made, we were successful.

We were committed to saving Lot 18 Cape Kimberley Road and as per our mission, no other alternative was acceptable. We did this knowing we're not alone – that generous supporters like yourself had our back.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY

Lot 18 Cape Kimberley Road—the name belies the true majesty of what this area of pristine rainforest represents—is almost 9 hectares of mature Spur Mahogany and Mossman Mahogany, as well as several Silky Oak species including Fishtail Silky Oak, Briar Silky Oak, Cream Silky Oak, and Red Tulip Oak. And so much more!

It provides a rich and vibrant habitat that supports our beloved and endangered Cassowaries, the wonderful Bennett’s tree kangaroos, tiny jumping spiders, and large-shelled snails… the list is significant as is this crucial habitat.

Our Ecological Advisor, Allen Sheather, noted the property’s significant conservation value: “Lot 18 borders the National Park and World Heritage Area on three sides and its western boundary is against a lot that is also as undisturbed.”

Allen noted that the species present, “exemplifies established, mature rainforest—it is missing any weed incursions and has a very high, intact canopy populated by many large buttress rooted trees and not so many mid-canopy species that can often be seen even in good rainforest that has endured severe weather events.”

THANK YOU!

We can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support and belief in the work of Rainforest Rescue. Our 35th rescue in the Daintree World Heritage Area is only possible because people like you care enough to make a difference.

This is now 36 properties in the Daintree – and you can add Lot 83 Cape Tribulation Rd to that list as well, thanks to our partnership with Queensland Trust for Nature. AND – more good news to come!

In the meantime, know that we are deeply grateful to be able to do this work together – we couldn’t do it without you.

To celebrate this stunning example of Australian rainforest, Martin Stringer, our incredibly talented Media Producer, made a video and we want to share it with you ... protecting pristine rainforest such as Lot 18 Cape Kimberley Road, is what we get out of bed for ...
