Help Save Daintree Cassowaries

#weneedrainforest

1. Slow Down on the Roads

Cars are the number one killer of Cassowaries in the Far North. We can all do our bit to slow down on the roads, especially in Cassowary populated areas.

2. Donate online

Daintree Discovery Centre believes one of the best ways to increase Cassowary Numbers, is to provide them with more Rainforest area. As a grassroots “boots-on-the-ground” organisation, Rainforest Rescue is a perfect partner to facilitate the necessary re-vegetation of rainforest areas in the Daintree.

Donate as little or as much as you like to Rainforest Rescue or choose to become a Rainforest Rescuer and contribute every month. Every bit helps!

3. Visit the Daintree Discovery Centre

The Daintree Discovery Centre is one of the best places to see wild Cassowaries in the Daintree. After a very successful breeding season, we are excited to experience some of our resident Cassowaries with lots of young chicks in 2015! Visitors have been fortunate enough to report regular sightings of the Cassowaries, from the safety of numerous viewing platforms and Aerial walkways throughout the Centre. As part of our commitment to Cassowary Conservation we have pledged to match all coin donations for Rainforest Rescue, made at the Daintree Discovery Centre, dollar-for-dollar.
