Tropic Wings is an eco-accredited business which means sustainability is extremely important to us and we work hard to further reduce carbon emissions and help our environment. Through Reforest, we will plant enough trees in a local reforestation project to remove all the carbon emissions from your tour. The project we have selected is restoring agricultural land on the Atherton Tableland, planting a combination of rainforest and native conifer species.
