Today at Otway Fly Treetop Adventures, mascot Otway Ollie was joined by students from Colac South West Primary to celebrate Otway Tree Week – an initiative aimed at encouraging tree lovers far and wide to take a hands on role in ensuring the future of the rainforest by planting a tree.

“With rainforests covering just 0.14 per cent of Victoria’s total area, Otway Fly Treetop Adventures recognises the importance of protecting and conserving this precious ecosystem, which is home to an amazing array and diversity of flora and fauna,” said Otway Fly Treetop Adventures General Manager, Daniel Kay.

“We hope that Otway Tree Week not only encourages tree lovers far and wide to reconnect with nature and do their bit for the local environment, but also raise awareness around the simple actions people can do to protect these precious ecosystems.
