"What a great day. With Will to guide us, we went searching for cassowary and crocodiles, learnt so much about the area and rainforests, surfed through the canopy on zip wires, had great food and really delicious ice cream, finally paddling in a river - and some folks enjoying a swim. It was superb!"

Who are Rainforest Rescue?

Rainforest Rescue are a non-for-profit organisation with the goal of protecting rainforests forever. The organisation has been protecting and preserving rainforests both in Australia and across the globe since 1998.

What are they doing to help the Daintree Rainforest?

  • Planted more than 50,000 trees in the Daintree.
  • As part of their Buy Back program, Rainforest Rescue has contributed to the long-term protection of 31 properties within the Daintree. Their goal is to buy back 180 properties within the Daintree by 2030.
  • Protecting the home of the Southern Cassowary. Protecting this species is extremely important, as it is estimated that 70-100 plant species depend on the cassowary for seed dispersal.
  • By working with academics, universities and research institutions, Rainforest Rescue has assisted researchers in gaining a greater understanding of the Daintree, and consequently, best practice on how to protect it.
  • Preventing harmful runoff to the Great Barrier Reef from the Daintree’s waterways.
