11 New Rainforest Properties Protected Forever!

11 New Rainforest Properties Proected Forever
11 New Rainforest Properties Proected Forever
Eleven new rainforest properties have been protected forever with Nature Refuge covenants across the Daintree lowlands.

Working with the Queensland Trust for Nature the covenanted properties include the creation of a new Milky Pine Wildlife Refuge and significant expansion of both the Baralba Corridor and Rainforest Rescue Nature Refuges.

"This is a fantastic win for the rainforest" says Madeleine Faught, Rainforest Rescue Chair. "Overnight we've doubled the area of our rainforest protected under Nature Refuges in the Daintree. The covenants strip all development rights from the land, protecting the rainforest forever." 

Of the 26 rainforest properties we’ve rescued with your support, 20 have now been protected by covenants, creating five Nature Reserves. In addition, two further rainforest properties have been rescued and added to the Daintree National Park.

Wildlife Corridor Connected

Lot 38, Cape Tribulation Road is of immense value as it completes a wildlife corridor between Swamp Forest Nature Reserve and Daintree National Park via another Rainforest Rescue property. To stop the land from being sold and developed we put down a deposit. Thanks to the generosity of supporters we're now one step closer to protecting the land forever and are going through the final stages of purchasing the property.

Your support in helping us protect this very special place is genuinely appreciated by myself and the rest of the team at Rainforest Rescue. With your help we can rescue, restore and conserve this exceptional piece of rainforest for future generations.

Thank you for helping us Protect Rainforest Forever.
