We all know that trees are the lungs of the earth. Without them life just wouldn’t be as awesome. The Daintree rainforest is right here in Australia home to an amazing variety of plants and animals, including 142 rare, threatened and endangered species of plants and 44 rare, threatened or endangered species of animals. While most of the Daintree Rainforest 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.
Rainforest Rescue is on a mission to redeem approximately 180 rainforest properties. So far they have rescued 36 properties The preservation of such a precious world environmental icon I believe can help us all. By assisting in this environmental cause it also does another great thing, saves endangered species endemic to Australia. We must leave this planet in a better condition than we found it for our children who in turn will do the same. Remember, as Whitney Houston once said “I believe the children are our future, teach them well and let them lead the way”.
