World Cassowary Day will be celebrated in Mission Beach on Saturday 26 September 2015.
The event is being hosted by C4 (Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation) at the C4 Environment Centre and arboretum next door by the beach.
It is an opportunity to share information about the cassowary’s life history, conservation status and pathways to survival. ‘We want it to be a catalyst for concerted action to save one of our most valuable creatures’ said Peter Rowles from C4.
There will be lots of displays, guest speakers, competitions, Aboriginal dancing, stories, native animals, music and food.
Anyone interested in helping with World Cassowary Day or wanting to have display stalls is invited to contact C4 on 07 40687197 or Peter Rowles on 0429 179152.
