Our 31st Threatened Property Saved thanks to Khemist Inc.!
The significant funding that Khemist Inc have invested into Rainforest Rescue went towards our ability to buy our 31st unprotected property!! Not six months after our last property was saved and we have now protected another very threatened and vulnerable Daintree lowland property!
This is particularly satisfying as in 2015 when Rainforest Rescue originally tried to save this block it was sold from under our feet for development. Luckily since then and now only a small area was cleared before work stopped and this will regenerate quickly with our plantings.
65,000 Trees Restore Stripped Sugarcane Field
Rainforest Rescue has been very busy reforesting Nightwings, the old stripped sugar cane plantation in Mossman. Thanks also to Khemist Inc’s funding for regenerations work, a whopping 65,000 trees are in the ground. We see the rainforest is coming back to life with recent sightings of birds, snakes and butterflies calling Nightwings home.
Daintree Rangers Joe and Basil have been taking advantage of the perfect conditions for planting – hot and wet! After a big downfall the crew got another 1,000 seedlings in the ground before another rain set in. Says Basil “The seedlings had an extremely dry, hot weekend but are certainly soaking up the water now.”
Wildlife Loving the Hot and Wet
Up north around and on Rainforest Rescue properties, wildlife has been thriving. A Lichen spider is pictured above and a beautiful Boyd’s Forest Dragon as below. Similar to the Southern Cassowary, this little guy is too a living dinosaur whose family lines date back to the Jurassic period. Just some of many examples of the wildlife returning to regenerated Daintree lowland rainforest.
Thank you so very much Khemist Inc. None of these huge accomplishments would be possible without you.
