Landslides – disaster or renewal?

Daintree landslide

Firecraft were left in awe this week and totally humbled by the stark contrast of the ancient forest greenery against the scar on Thornton Peak from the slump landslide. A major geological event that occurred in the Daintree rainforest in July 2018 after significant rainfall.

Some may consider it an environmental disaster having an impact on our oldest rainforest…… or does it have important ecological function similar to a volcano?? Certainly sparks thoughts of what will grow there and inhabit it in our lifetime before it develops its pre-landslide complexity long into the future again.
