Colin the Cassowary has kindly been donated to the Wet Tropics by artist Anne O’Brien from Fiji. Anne makes life-sized, realistic sculptures using recycled fabrics – see her anniemalsartist website. Colin is now on permanent loan to the Cassowary Recovery Team to help raise awareness of the plight of cassowaries.

Colin has already met the Threatened Species Commissioner, Gregory Andrews, at the Australian Birdfair in Sydney and is now being cared for by Kuranda Conservation.
