Rainforest Rescue

Rainforest Rescue has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since 1998.

They do this by protecting the biodiversity of high conservation value rainforest, and by re-establishing rainforest through planting, maintenance and restorative conservation programs.

Reef Keepers supports Rainforest Rescue in the reforestation of retired cane farms in the Daintree. Their work has seen great success with a more than 70% reduction of polluting soil runoff into the Great Barrier Reef, and the return of many species of birds, bats, lizards, and even a cassowary to the area.

The Nightwings Project aims to build a connected habitat corridor in the Daintree Rainforest. This will result in a fully restored rainforest connection from the Daintree Lowland, and the Great Barrier Reef up to the Upland Rainforest and through to Stewart’s Creek on the other side of the Dagmar Range.
