Education & Information Resources

A quick search for ‘cassowary’ on the internet will reveal many webpages, not all of which we’d recommend! However, in addition to this website and the Cassowary Recovery Team members’ websites (follow the links in the sidebar), the following may be useful for school projects or self-guided learning. If you find a great resource that we’ve missed, feel free to post a link in the comments section.

The “No Wabu No Wuju No Gunduy” (No Rainforest No Food No Cassowary) DVD was produced by the Girringun Aboriginal Corporation (with assistance from EnviroFund and the Wet Tropics Management Authority). It depicts the close links between Rainforest Aboriginal people and the cassowary and their fears for its future survival.
