What's better than one Cassowary? Two! We think most things in the Daintree Rainforest are better when doubled, and right now, your donation can have double the impact.
We still need $201,549 to purchase and protect Lot 26 Ronald Road, and with time running out, the situation is becoming urgent.
Please, act now and help us save this block of land from the threat of development, so it can be protected forever. A of $50 will help purchase ten square metres and $100 will help purchase twenty square metres of the World Heritage-value Daintree Rainforest.
Lot 26 Ronald Road provides crucial habitat for the Endangered Southern Cassowary and 187 native plant species, five of which have been marked for conservation.
It is also zoned by the Douglas Shire Council for development.
Our vision for the Daintree Lowland Rainforest requires the buyback of all undeveloped or unsettled freehold properties in the Daintree Lowland Rainforest and their management for nature conservation.
So far, with the help of thousands of people in Australia and around the world, we have managed to purchase 27 Daintree properties for conservation, but we are not the only interested party. There is competition from people who would purchase land in the world’s oldest rainforest and develop it for housing.
To prevent the development of Lot 26 Ronald Road we acted quickly and exchanged a contract of sale. Now we need your help.
Every $5 you donate will purchase one square metre of Daintree Rainforest. That means a donation of $50 will help purchase ten square metres and $100 will help purchase twenty square metres of the World Heritage-value Daintree Rainforest.

The purchase of properties like Lot 26 prevents development and the fragmentation of our rainforests. Not only does development bring more traffic on local roads and the introduction of domestic pets that prey on wildlife, it also introduces exotic plants that become weeds.
Please, help us protect the most biodiverse ecosystem in Australia.
Double your impact and donate now to purchase and protect this important Daintree Rainforest property.
With matched gifts in place, just $25 will help us purchase and protect five square metres of the iconic Daintree Rainforest.
