Rainforest Rescue

Rainforest Rescue is a not-for-profit organisation that has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since 1998 by providing opportunities for individuals and businesses to Protect Rainforests Forever.

Our projects re-establish rainforests through planting, maintenance and restoration programs, as well as purchasing and protecting high conservation value rainforest and preserving its biodiversity.


Our mission is to inspire, engage and build community for the protection, preservation and restoration of rainforests through fundraising and education.


What a gift of $25 can achieve

Every $25 donated to Rainforest Rescue will

  • buy back and protect 5 square metres of Australian Daintree Lowlands Rainforests, protecting it forever from rural residential development.
  • plant and maintain one rainforest tree for two trees in the Daintree and Big Scrub Rainforests of Australia, restoring habitat for many endemic species of plants and animals
  • plant and maintain one Birdwing Vine for two years in the sub-tropical rainforests of Australia, restoring habitat and food for the threatened Richmond Birdwing Butterfly
  • protect 500 square metres of Orangutan habitat through engaging local people to manage on-ground conservation outcomes including the propagation, planting and maintenance of rainforest trees along with the removal of illegally planted Oil Palms
  • purchase and protect 800 square metres of Cloud Forest in Ecuador, reconnecting the Cotacachi-Cayapas Ecological Reserve and the Mindo Nambillo Reserve
  • plant 25 trees in Sri Lanka to restore the World Heritage-Listed Sinharaja Forest Reserve through engaging local people in plant propagation and rainforest conservation


Rainforest Rescue Projects

Daintree Buy Back and Protect Forever Project

The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest rainforest in the world and of international conservation importance. While most of the Daintree was declared a World Heritage Area in 1988, areas of the Daintree Lowland Rainforest were not included and were subsequently divided into rural residential lots. Approximately 180 rainforests are still undeveloped and maintain their development rights. Rainforest Rescue is buying back those properties with high conservation status to reduce the amount of fragmentation of the rainforest and to protect the unique biodiversity values of the Daintree Rainforest forever.

Daintree Plant a Rainforest Project

Over the past 100 years areas of the Daintree Rainforest have been cleared for agriculture and rural residential development causing fragmentation and loss of habitat for over 122 threatened species. Rainforest Rescue's Daintree Plant a Rainforest Project restores previously cleared areas of rainforest and establishes habitat for plants and animals local to the specific ecosystem which protects its precious biodiversity.

Big Scrub Plant a Rainforest Project

The Big Scrub Rainforest was once the largest expanse of lowland sub-tropical rainforest in Australia. Today only 700 of the original 75,000 hectares remains and is listed as critically endangered. Remnant patches are under constant threat from weeds and other environmental pressures. These patches are rich in species diversity and are home to 50 species of threatened plants and animals. Rainforest Rescue is actively working to protect remnant patches through planting trees and supporting natural regeneration processes.

Orangutan Habitat for Survival Project

Orangutans are found only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra in Indonesia where their survival is threatened by illegal logging and the establishment of Oil Palm plantations. There are estimated to be only 6624 Critically Endangered Sumatran Orangutans left in the wild. Our project is helping to restore vital Orangutan habitat in the Gunung Leuser National Park, North Sumatra, through the planting of rainforest plant species, the removal of illegally planted Oil Palms, and the prevention of further clearing of the rainforest. Our project is also empowering local communities to protect and improve their environment and surrounding forests through providing sustainable employment in rainforest restoration.

Ecuador Save a Hectare Project

The Andean Cloud Forests of Ecuador are in grave danger from the constant threat of logging, mining and farming. The creation of the Choco-Andean Rainforest Corridor in Ecuador by Rainforest Concern is supported by Rainforest Rescue. It protects threatened rainforests and creates a vital link between the Andean Cloud Forests and the lowland forests of the Awa Ethnic Reserve.

Sri Lanka Plant a Rainforest Project

The rainforests of Sri Lanka are one of the most threatened ecosystems on the planet. With total cover less than a few thousand hectares, the rainforests of Sri Lanka have been reduced to 140 forest patches. The largest of these is the Sinharaja Forest Reserve, regarded as one of the world's 25 biodiversity hot spots. Rainforest Rescue's Sri Lanka Plant a Rainforest Project is working to protect the Sinharaja Reserve by reducing pressures on rainforest resources through community education and rainforest regeneration, as well as establishing a sustainable livelihood for local residents through providing employment in ecosystem and biodiversity maintenance.
