Salus Vita Compassion Backpack "Daintree" is named after the Daintree rainforest. The Daintree Rainforest in the tropical north of Queensland is the largest rainforest in Australia with an area of over 1,200 square kilometers. It is home to many animal and plant species that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
Approximately half of the rainforest in these lowlands has been cleared and much of the remaining rainforest has been selectively cut down. The remaining rainforest is very limited and has a high biodiversity.
Widely recognized by scientists as the oldest tropical rainforest in the world (which has been developing and thriving for perhaps 185 million years), the Daintree Lowland Rainforest is exceptionally biodiverse and has an exceptionally high conservation value. It contains a nearly complete record of the evolution of plant life on Earth and has more ancient families of flowering plants than anywhere else in the world, including the entire Amazon jungle.
With our Salus Vita backpacks, we want to raise awareness of the conservation of our rainforests and the saving of the species endemic in them.
