Challenge

To ensure the survival of some of Australia’s most precious and beloved marsupials, birds and reptiles and its ecosystem. Extensive damage to habitat caused by the wildfires. The temperate rainforest and species will benefit from this project.

Solution

Planting less flammable native trees will help restore the damaged forest and create a natural buffer to untouched, pristine rainforest, home to many unique animals, birds, reptiles and insects. Bolstering natural refuges.

Long-Term Impact

To ensure the survival of some of Australia’s most beloved marsupials, birds and reptiles and its ecosystem. There has been a National call to arms and Aussies from around the country are doing their bit and taking part in helping during this crisis!
