World Cassowary Day

September 26, 2021


The Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) is a large, flightless bird with impressive colouring and strong, dinosaur-like feet.

World Cassowary Day is a day of celebration to draw international attention to the reasons Cassowaries are globally important and need to be protected.

On World Cassowary Day, we celebrate and showcase the Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) and the conservation efforts of people working to protect them, their home, and the other unique and endangered animals of the World Heritage-listed Wet Tropics Rainforests.
