World Cassowary Day

WORLD CASSOWARY DAY – IN THE DAINTREE!

World Cassowary Day is a great chance to celebrate all of the wonderful things about our endangered Southern Cassowary friends.

As one of the leaders in Cassowary Conservation in the Daintree, The Daintree Discovery Centre takes great pride in initiating public campaigns to help save this precious bird. World Cassowary Day is a great chance to highlight important Cassowary conservation issues and raise public awareness about all of things we can do to help increase to population of Cassowaries, not only in the Daintree but the entire Wet Tropics area.

Every year there is an official World Cassowary Day Gathering that rotates throughout various Cassowary Hot-Spots. In 2015 the event will be held in Mission Beach. http://www.worldcassowaryday.com

The Daintree Discovery Centre takes pride in hosting celebrations in the Daintree for this fantastic day. We look forward to entertaining families every year with fun Cassowary related activities and give aways on offer, as part of every admission.

We encourage all visitors to tag their photos with #WENEEDRAINFOREST to raise awareness about the importance of rainforest revegetation. The projects we undertake with the help of Rainforest Rescue create important ‘connected’ rainforest habitats which are pivotal in maintaining and improving Cassowary populations.
