The Community Sustainability Action Grant has been awarded to rehabilitate previous pasture land into rainforest that will back onto the first Cassowary Rehabilitation Facility in the Atherton Tablelands. Barrine Park and adjoining Cedarvale Nature Refuge are two private reserves that have put in fantastic work in widening and expanding one of the first constructed Wildlife Corridors created in Australia. Donaghy’s Corridor connects various National Parks, Reserves and State Forests, linking the rainforest of the Atherton Tablelands to fragments of rainforest on the North Queensland Coast.

Come help us restore and rehabilitate new sections of the corridor that surround the Soft Release Cassowary Rehabilitation Facility with an emphasis on Cassowary orchard trees to create suitable habitat for these Endangered birds.

Volunteers will assist in greenfield plantings of 4,000 new trees, watering & mulching previous plantings, and ensuring vines and weeds do not threaten our efforts.

Some of this project is being delivered as Community Planting Days (some on weekends) with the opportunity for a sausage sizzle, celebration & tour of the property.
