It's been a big year for the protection of land in the Daintree Lowland Rainforest with six properties purchased for conservation, according to the Rainforest4 Foundation website.

It says they are now working towards the inclusion of these properties in the Daintree National Park.

“We are delighted to have made this progress towards reversing the impacts of the rural residential subdivision that was created in the 1980s.

“We don't receive any government funding and all of these properties were purchased with donations from individuals who believe the Daintree Lowland Rainforest should be protected forever.

“The properties are located in the localities of Forest Creek, Cow Bay, and Diwan. All of the properties have a boundary that connects them to land in the Daintree National Park estate,” says the report.

The properties are: (see map)
