Rainforest Rescue

Rainforest Rescue

Rainforest Rescue has been protecting and restoring rainforests in Australia and internationally since 1998. We do this by purchasing properties of high conservation value rainforest and protecting their biodiversity. We also restore rainforest through planting, maintenance and weed removal.

Who we are

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 vision

To Protect Rainforests Forever.

Our mission is to:
Rescue vulnerable rainforests by buying threatened properties;
Restore damaged and fragmented habitat through reforestation;

Rainforest Rescue was established from a community wish to protect rainforest forever. We are committed to building relationships with individuals, philanthropists, businesses and grant-making organisations through which the majority of our funding is sourced.
