Thank you to everyone who made a donation towards this great outcome. We reached our fundraising target on Thursday the 23rd of January 2020.
Lot 390 Maple 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. A survey by ecologist Kristopher Kupsch found it to be an ideal habitat for Cassowaries with 207 species of plants.
Lot 390 Maple 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.
