2020 ANNUAL REPORT Daintree Rainforest Camera Trap Project As a part of its long-term Daintree Rainforest Camera Trap Project, 2020 will always be the year that the Foundation first published images of the very rare Bennett’s Tree Kangaroo - Dendrolagus bennettianus (De Vis, 1887) in natural habitat.

Daintree River Crossing (DRC) - Options Assessment Report Response My preference: Retain a single ferry with drastically improved visitor management, both over the ferry and across the entire area of visitation. Neil Hewett - 14-10-2020 Paramount consideration of this proposal must be given to the treasure it provides almost exclusive access to. After all, the DRC is gateway to the second-most irreplaceable
