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.


On Sunday 28 July we held a community planting in Cow Bay for National Tree Day. 23 volunteers planted 1035 trees in under two hours. This is part of a much longer 700-metre strip, which will create a wildlife corridor. This brings our total to 6915 trees in the ground. You can read more on our planting progress on the link below.


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.
