JCU Daintree Rainforest Observatory

Enabling hands-on student experiences.

JCU's Daintree Rainforest Observatory (DRO) is our classroom in the rainforest. Offering researchers and students access to a large range of ecosystems, it hosts Australia's only rainforest canopy crane.

Sometimes our students need a little extra help to gain a hands-on experience or complete their research at the Daintree Rainforest Observatory. Donations to this fund provide grants to JCU students to enable research and vital study experiences or to alleviate financial burdens associated with visiting the station.

Your support of our students, our researchers and the hand-on research experiences like those provided at the Daintree Rainforest Observatory helps make positive change for our region, for Australia and for the World.
