Back in 2016 the coastal community of Wabumari, in Orangerie Bay, partnered with Cool Earth to protect over 400 acres of biodiversity-rich, community-owned rainforest. Through the partnership, Wabumari is creating sustainable futures for over 300 community members and their forest.
This year Wabumari has joined the Queens Commonwealth Canopy, sealing them into a global initiative of forest protection and ecological conservation.
With a forest agreement underway, the community and Cool Earth had a QCC launch party, where guests arrived from all around Orangerie Bay to celebrate the protection of their rainforest. A night of singing, guitar playing and plenty of dancing commenced.
And, boy do they know how to throw a good party.
