Rainforest, Wildlife

The North Queensland Wildlife Trust provides an easy mechanism for visitors to make an active contribution to the conservation of native species and local habitats. Visitors are encouraged to donate their spare change at the various collection boxes located at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures, Kuranda Koala Gardens, and Birdworld Kuranda. For each dollar collected, the business holding the donation box matches the cash collected, dollar for dollar (individual contributions are matched up to the value of $100). Your conference or group can donate too.

Since inception, the North Queensland Wildlife Trust has distributed in excess of $200,000 to local conservation groups with Deductable Gift Recipient (DGR) Status, including:

Rehabilitation of Cassowary habitat in Daintree and Mission Beach

Restoration of Tree Kangaroo habitat on Petersen’s Creek, Yungaburra

Breeding for release of endangered Gouldian Finches

Construction of facilities and funded specialist training for wildlife carers

Research into the prevalence of Northern Bettongs
