Lot 124 Quandong Road is an essential habitat for the Endangered Cassowary and needs to be purchased and added to the Daintree National Park!  

The property was advertised online for $50,000. We made a lower offer and the owner of the property accepted as they needed a quick sale. We’ve now signed a contract of sale and have the challenge to raise $25,000 by the 23rd of February to enable settlement on the purchase in early March 2020.

Please, will you help purchase and protect Lot 124 Quandong Road in the Daintree Rainforest. Every $2.50 you donate will save one square metre of the Daintree. If you donate $25 you will save ten square meters of essential Cassowary habitat! A donation of $50 will save 20 square meters and $100 will save forty square meters of the World Heritage value Daintree Rainforest.

The Daintree Lowland Rainforest is one of the oldest rainforests on Earth and provides a refuge for wildlife and ancient flowering plants. It holds exceptionally high biodiversity and conservation value and is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest remaining in Australia.

The Daintree Lowland Rainforest has remained undisturbed by fires for 120 million years.

The Daintree Lowland Rainforest is one of the wettest places in Australia. Rainfall in the first ten days of January is 347 mm.

In the 1980’s the Queensland government approved an 1,100-lot rural residential subdivision in the Daintree. This resulted in two-thirds of the Daintree Lowland Rainforest being excluded from protection in the Daintree National Park and Wet Tropics World Heritage Area that was declared in 1988. Purchase of these properties and adding them to the Daintree National Park provides a fantastic outcome for wildlife conservation.

Each $25 raised will purchase and protect ten sqm of the Lowland Daintree Rainforest. Please, make a donation now to help purchase and protect Lot 124 Quandong Road.

Lot 124 Quandong Road in the Daintree Rainforest

Lot 124 Quandong Road is located in Cow Bay. Buying land in this location helps us to reverse the impacts of the disastrous 1980’s rural residential subdivision. We are focusing our efforts on Cow Bay as scientists have identified this area as being the highest priority for conservation. It has some of the highest levels of biodiversity and the highest densities of Cassowaries in Australia. Please, will you make a tax-deductible donation now to save essential habitat for the endangered Cassowary.

Many of our supporters have asked us to save some rainforest in Australia so we’ve partnered with the Rainforest 4 Foundation to help save the Daintree Lowland Rainforest in Far North Queensland. They’ve purchased four properties over the last eight months I know we can do this and all that’s needed is your support. 

Through our project Land Purchase to Save the Daintree, we are buying land and adding properties to the Daintree National Park and World Heritage Area. With your help, we will safeguard Cassowaries in this critical habitat. Please take action today and help us Save the Cassowary through the purchase of Lot 124 Quandong Road.
