PURCHASE OF LOT 124 Quandong Road, Cow Bay
Through the support of 271 amazing donors, we raised the $25,000 required for the purchase of the property on the 3rd of March 2020. Thank you to everyone who donated to ensure this special Daintree property is added to the Daintree National Park! You’ve joined with others to achieve a fantastic outcome for endangered wildlife. Lot 124 Quandong Road, Cow Bay is 1 ha in size and is covered by tropical rainforest. Buying and protecting this property is a fantastic outcome for conservation as it connects to the Daintree National Park and it provides vital habitat for the Endangered Southern Cassowary and the rare Bennetts Tree-kangaroo.
The settlement on the purchase of Lot 124 Quandong Road occurred on the 24th of March 2020. We've now begun the process to transfer the property to the Queensland Government for inclusion in the Daintree National Park will begin. The Rainforest 4 Foundation and the Jabalbina Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation are working together to achieve this outcome.
We launched this appeal with our friends at HalfCut, an organisation that reminds us that we’ve lost half of the world’s rainforest and we’ve got to save what’s left. Thank you, Jimmy and Jess and all of the team and supporters of HalfCut for the wonderful effort in raising funds for the purchase of Lot 124 Quandong Road.
