Welcome to the Skyrail Rainforest Foundation
Chairman's Update
Welcome to our new members and thank you to our existing and lifetime members for your ongoing support of the Skyrail Rainforest Foundation.

Many of the projects funded by the Foundation have already resulted in new insights and improved management practices and even rediscovery of a species thought to be extinct. The support of the Foundation is also helping to build scientific and management capacity in North Queensland, which we believe has great benefits to the long term protection and management of the World Heritage Area.

Did you know?
The Cairns Birdwing is the largest endemic butterfly in Australia, with females growing to more than 16cm ?

The males are very brightly coloured with patches of green and yellow on their wings, a bright red thorax and a yellow abdomen. These beautiful butterflies are seen often at Skyrail.
Barron Falls Roars!
Bring the kids, your rain jackets and the camera! You do not want to miss this...

The magestic Barron Falls have literally come alive this week after recent tropical rains have fed its dramatic descent into the rugged Barron Gorge.
Foundation Supports
Tropical Tree Day
Not even a typically steamy Cairns summer morning could deter the 150 people who converged upon the Kamerunga Conservation Park to participate in Tropical Tree Day 2017.
 
From kiddies to retirees, everyone did their bit to contribute to the target 1000 saplings that were successfully planted. The long term planting program will help ensure the local community around the Conservation Park will have access to a top quality recreational area for years to come.
An Abundance of Wildlife
A recent wildlife observation night hosted by Skyrail’s Environment Department and Rangers uncovered some interesting residents in the bushland around the Smithfield terminal. Read the full story and learn more Australian rainforest facts in Ranger Tim's Nature Diary on the Skyrail blog.
