Wonderful news! Lot 34 Cape Tribulation Road in the Daintree will now be protected from the threat of development, with settlement set to occur this Thursday, July 20.
Thank you! On behalf of the animals that call the Daintree Rainforest home, thank you to all the people who made a donation towards this outcome. I am so grateful for your ongoing support in saving the Daintree.
The success of this project comes just a few weeks after the full amount for nearby Lot 26 Ronald Road in the Daintree was raised, thanks again to our wonderful supporters. Both of these freehold properties can now begin their journey on the pathway to protection and inclusion in the Daintree National Park.
These fantastic outcomes would also not have been possible without the contributions of our generous donors in response to our end-of-financial-year appeal. Thank you for answering the call.

About Lot 34 Cape Tribulation Road
Spanning 3 hectares and home to two types of lowland rainforest, Lot 34 Cape Tribulation Road provides vital habitat for 195 species of native plants and animals including the endangered Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius johnsonii), the Orange-footed Scrub Fowl (Megapodius reinwardt) by and the Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfisher.

Once the purchase has been completed, we will move on to restoring degraded areas of the property. Past clearing has resulted in the introduction of environmental weeds on the property which have filled gaps in the rainforest canopy and prevented natural regeneration. We will address this problem by directing some of the funds raised for this project towards removing the weeds and assisting natural regeneration of native forest species.
Then we will begin the process for Lot 34 to be assessed for inclusion in the Daintree National Park CYPAL (Cape York Peninsula Aboriginal Land) estate.
Thank you again to everyone who has contributed to the purchase and protection of this property. Your support is making a real difference in the Daintree.
