Saving the Daintree

We have made a pledge to save 1 square meter of Daintree Rainforest for every Collar or Lead sold. 

Bohemi Handcrafted has joined with HalfCut to help save the Daintree Rainforest and return the land back to the Traditional Owners, the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people. 

The environment is extremely important and very close to our hearts. We want to give back by helping raise awareness and save our precious 180 million year old rainforest and the wildlife living within it. 

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. 

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. These lots are quickly being purchased and developed resulting in devastating forest clearings and injured, killed or homeless wildlife.

The Daintree Rainforest is regarded as an iconic national treasure for its unique evolutionary history and tremendous conservation value. A number of 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.

Every Daintree property lot purchased by HalfCut for conservation will help reverse these impacts and secure future protection of the land. They work to protect crucial forests and habitat for threatened and endangered species, protect Traditional Owners land titles and arrange mass tree planting projects.     

The time to act, is now!
