We've planted over 15,000 trees across 11 sites in Australia 

With support from ongoing donors, corporate & business partners, and grant bodies 

WHAT WE DO


ReForest Now is a non-profit environmental NGO based in Byron Bay, Australia on a mission to plant trees.

We grow the trees we plant in our own nursery in with the help of volunteers and community.  



We recognise the Earth as a living system and we make it possible for people from all stages of life to contribute to the protection, renewal, and survival of our natural world. 

We strive to protect endangered species along the way by growing threatened tree species and including vines and trees that are key habitat and food for endangered animals and insects.

WHERE WE WORK

 

We plant across in the tropical and subtropical regions of Australia and are soon expanding into Indonesia.

Our nursery and team is based in Northern NSW, Australia.

SCIENTIFIC PRODUCTIONS & MATERIALS

A key component of any conservation work is understanding the science behind our complex ecosystems and Earth. 

ReForest Now produces a range of scientific materials.

We collaborate with scientists in conservation genetics and environmental science to produce resources to further our understanding of working with endangered species, increasing genetic diversity, understanding bioprecipitation (How Forests Make it Rain). 

We are currently developing a handbook and video series for conservations to enhance genetic diversity of endangered species they work with. 

Videos

Endangered Species of the Daintree

ReForest Now has produced the first comprehensive scientific video of the endangered species of the Daintree rainforest of Far North Queensland as a learning tool - showing there are 48 endangered or critically endangered species in the ecosystem.

Our aim is to provide brief, yet meaningful information and to show just how important it is to keep expanding Daintree habitat by planting more trees.

How Rainforests Call the Rain 

ReForest Now produced a referenced synthesis of top journals on the topic of bioprecipitation. 
 

This synthesis explores the most up to date research from various scientific fields to show an array of evidence regarding bioprecipitation.

 

Bioprecipitation is the concept that biology material could cause rainfall and further in this video we will demonstrate that there is good reason to believe that some organisms have evolved mechanisms specifically to float into the atmosphere and set rain on their host forests.

Survival of the Rainforests. A Genetic Approach

Our co-founder Maximo Bottaro presenting his genetic research on remnant rainforest trees vs nursery seedlings completed with Southern Cross University. We demonstrate through our co-founders finding that the genetic diversity of the rainforest species in the big scrub is at risk and that we must increase our collection methods to gather seed from more parent trees, fragments and longer ranges.
