Coalition pledges $150,000 for cassowaries in Cape York

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.
