Finding a cassowary scat sprouting rainforest trees can be a great way to stock your nursery and grow more cassowary food trees. Many thanks to Jeff Larsen from C4 (Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation) in Mission Beach for providing this picture.
On World Environment day the Federal Government promised an additional $5 million to protect a number of threatened animal and plant species in Australia. One of the nine species to benefit is the southern cassowary.
The Cassowary Recovery Team would receive $150,000 to work with Indigenous communities in Cape York to study cassowary populations and improve cassowary habitat through activities such as fire management and pig control.
