Promoting positive outcomes in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest via education and a goal of planting 500,000 trees by 2030.

“The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago. The second best time is now.”

- Chinese Proverb

Turn old bottles and cans into rainforest. Use the number on the left at approved drop off centres in Queensland and Western Australia to donate your 10c refund eligible drinks containers to Daintree Life rainforest revegetation.


Working in conjunction with Douglas Shire Council, various stakeholders and private landowners, our aims are to identify key areas of land for suitable revegetation to promote positive outcomes for the Daintree ecosystem and the broader environment, expand the tourism experience, and help the local economy.


Our current project is planting a former weed-filled roadside reserve with 920 trees. With generous donations from Rainforest 4 and the public, 252 trees are now fully funded and planted. Cassowaries and Bennett's Tree-kangaroos are regularly sighted here. You can help finish this area by donating here


So honoured to have spent time with Costa Georgiadis the much-loved host of Gardening Australia and to have then won the landcare category in the Let it grow, Douglas Garden Awards - judged by Costa. Here he is planting a tree (a Brown Pine) on one of our revegetation sites with Connie. The full story is on our blog post here

“Daintree Life would like to acknowledge the Eastern Kuku Yalanji people who are the Traditional Custodians of this land. We would also like to pay respect to the Elders both past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal people present.
