World Cassowary Day a huge success!

The Daintree Rainforest’s first ever World Cassowary Day celebration was held this month at the JCU Daintree Rainforest Observatory near Cape Tribulation. With perfect weather, around 35 market/conservation stalls a a jam packed program of guest speakers the day did not disappoint. Around 500 people joined us in celebrating ALL THINGS CASSOWARY and many even took part in the tree planting event held by the Rainforest Trust.
