Environment / Rainforest Rescue dismayed by Langley Rd clearing and greenwash

Rainforest Rescue have been used to excuse egregious actions at the Langley Rd development site...and the developers can have their money back!

❌ And the developers can have their money back!


❝We were dismayed to be leveraged in an article in the Cairns Post involving a property developer who assumed that his financial support for our work would excuse his company’s destructive actions against Nature. The actions of this company–which included the felling of beautiful melaleuca trees that were hundreds of years old, and that provided habitat to local creatures like ring-tailed possums–are in no way something that we would ever support.
And to be called out as a vehicle for mitigating such actions is unconscionable. We want to make this very clear: At no point were we aware that the funds from this business–which were made online–were linked to this awful activity. And would we have known, there is no way we would have accepted this donation.❞
