Saving the Daintree in memory of Cathy Ellis

In honour of the late Cathy Ellis, a long standing member of the Wetlands Team at the Queensland Government's Department of Environment and Science, Cathy's colleagues will be donating and fundraising for a cause that was close to Cathy's heart. 

Cathy's loss has been profoundly felt by her team and the wider division at the Department. Cathy was a very hard working, amazingly innovative and brilliant person, who was able to achieve outcomes which very few people could accomplish. Her development and management of WetlandInfo which is the largest and most comprehensive wetlands website in the world, is a powerful legacy which will endure.

One of the things we will all miss about Cathy is her unending passion for conservation and care for all wildlife, often dedicating large amounts of personal time to caring for injured and sick wildlife.

To honour Cathy, the department has set up a fundraising page with Rainforest 4 Foundation to allow staff to make a donation to a cause that was close to Cathy’s heart.

You are invited to contribute what you can and share with your community to assist the fundraising, to help save Lot 110 Fan Palm Road in the Daintree Rainforest.

This property is covered in beautiful Fan Palms and provides habitat for the endangered Cassowary. Donations are tax-deductible and receipts will be issued. Every $50 you donate will help purchase twenty-five square meters of beautiful Fan Palm-dominated tropical rainforest. 

A donation of $100 will help save fifty square meters of the Daintree Rainforest and $200 will help save one hundred square meters. Prefer to use PayPal? Please donate here.

Rainforest 4 Foundation is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
