Cassowary habitat revegetation

Thanks to the Queensland Department of Environment and Science, for funding our project to restore a critical link in Cassowary habitat within the Smith’s Gap Corridor, in Queensland’s Wet Tropics Region.

This generous grant will allow us to plant 16,000 trees, over 4 hectares and weed a further 10.5 hectares at Gurrbum Reserve, a property recently purchased by Queensland Trust for Nature in partnership with C4 (Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation).

The project, in conjunction with revegetation within the National Park and construction of a fauna land bridge across the Bruce Highway, will allow cassowaries and other wildlife to move through forested area over the highway and into the Walter Hill Conservation Park and through it to the Djiru National Park adjoining Wongaling Beach.
