World Cassowary Day is a great chance to celebrate all of the wonderful things about our endangered Southern Cassowary friends! 🐦  The Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) is a large, flightless bird with impressive colouring and strong, dinosaur-like feet.  Not only are cassowaries critical to the survival of the rainforest because they spread the seeds of the unique rainforest trees, but by protecting their home, we protect the homes of many other unique and endangered animals including Tree Kangaroos, Spectacled Flying Foxes and Mahogany Gliders. Not to mention the extremely ancient plant families found nowhere else on Earth. 🌲

QTFN ecologists enjoyed a day out in the field, touring a potential nature refuge property with the owner & Gold Coast City Council. Neighbouring Springbrook National Park and boasting beautiful rainforest flooded with bird song and age old trees the property is a great candidate for a nature refuge. 🐦🌲  Nature refuges are a fantastic way for private land owners to invest in the protection of Queensland’s natural places 🏞️
