BioPak to Save Endangered Species in The Daintree Rainforest

BioPak, a leading provider of sustainable plant-based packaging and one of Rainforest Rescue’s longest serving business partners, has announced a strong commitment to protect the habitat of threatened, endangered, precious and rare species in the Daintree rainforest.

The Daintree Rainforest is one of the most ecologically diverse ecosystems in the world, and of international conservation importance. While most of the Daintree is World Heritage, areas of coastal lowland rainforest remain unprotected with 75% of Australia's rainforest destroyed.

Rainforest Rescue works to buy back property zoned for development and Protect it Forever.

Located in the heart of the Daintree lowlands, Lot 46, Cape Tribulation Rd, provides an integral link between the upland and lowland rainforest and is home to rare, near threatened, endangered and vulnerable species including the Near Threatened Bennett's Tree Kangaroo.

BioPak has contributed significant funding to Rainforest Rescue to preserve and protect from development, an entire Hectare of Lot 46, forever! Home to many near threatened and endangered Daintree species.

Says BioPak's Founder & Director, Richard Fine: "We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of single use disposable packaging, one of the ways we do this is by replacing packaging made from fossil resources with products made from rapidly renewable plant based resources.

Supporting Rainforest Rescue provides us with an opportunity to contribute to the healing of the planet. If we want our children, and our children's children to enjoy the world's rainforests, then we need to find ways to conserve what we have now. We recognize the value of rainforests and unlike some of our other sustainability initiatives, with Rainforest Rescue we are able to actually see in real time, the positive change on the ground."
