OUR PLEDGE - To save 1 square meter of Daintree Rainforest for every Collar or Lead sold.
The Daintree Lowland Rainforest is one of the oldest rainforests on Earth, having survived undisturbed for over 120 million years. It holds exceptionally high biodiversity and conservation value and is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest remaining in Australia.
The Daintree Rainforest is an iconic national treasure for its unique evolutionary history and tremendous conservation value. Several rare and endangered species are found within Daintree National Park, including the Southern Cassowary. Southern Cassowaries consume over 150 different fruits and play a vital role as seed dispersers in the rainforest. Due to the destruction and fragmentation of their rainforest habitats, these large charismatic birds are classified as Vulnerable to extinction.
In 1982 the Queensland government approved a 1,137-lot rural residential subdivision in the Daintree. This resulted in two-thirds of the Daintree Lowland Rainforest being excluded from protection in the Daintree National Park and Wet Tropics World Heritage Area.
HalfCut aims to buy back and protect crucial forests for the habitat of threatened and endangered species, protect Traditional Owners’ land titles, start mass tree planting projects and ultimately be part of the solution to the growing climate emergency.
