Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

VOL­UN­TEERS will plant an­other 10,000 trees in the Dain­tree rain­for­est to pro­vide habi­tat for cas­sowaries and re­move car­bon pol­lu­tion from the air. The Rain­for­est Res­cue or­gan­i­sa­tion will plant the trees af­ter re­ceiv­ing a $5000 NRMA In­surance com­mu­nity grant. Rain­for­est Res­cue CEO Kelvin Davies said each tree could re­move a tonne of car­bon pol­lu­tion from the at­mos­phere over its life­time. “Our project also in­volves the com­mu­nity in tree plant­ing, seed col­lec­tion and care for seedlings, so peo­ple are ed­u­cated on reveg­e­ta­tion,” Mr Davies said.
