The second World Cassowary Day at the C4 and Mission Beach Visitor Centre, on the beach at Porters Promenade

All day event for the whole community. There will be lots of displays, including one from KCons, guest speakers, competitions, Aboriginal dancing, stories, native animals, music and food

The event is being hosted by C4 (Community for Coastal and Cassowary Conservation) at the C4 Environment Centre and arboretum next door by the beach.

It is an opportunity to share information about the cassowary’s life history, conservation status and pathways to survival. ‘We want it to be a catalyst for concerted action to save one of our most valuable creatures’ said Peter Rowles from C4.

Anyone interested in helping with World Cassowary Day or wanting to have display stalls is invited to contact C4 on 07 40687197 or Peter Rowles on 0429 179152.

For details, see the World Cassowary Day website and Facebook page.

Come along and join the fun by wearing cassowary colours blue red and black. Prizes for the best dressed.

Coming soon a new song ‘Bundarra’, is currently being produced with all profits going to help save the Cassowary. Why ‘Bundarra’? Watch this video filmed at the inaugural World Cassowary Day at Kuranda in 2014.
