Visitors and locals participated in wide range of activities for adults and children, browsed 40 colourful and informative stalls, and listened to a range of talks on cassowaries and their conservation, the Daintree Blockade and Wet Tropics insects.

The Threatened Species Commissioner, Gregory Andrews, outlined the Australian Government’s plans to help the recovery of the endangered southern cassowary and recognised the strong community support for cassowary conservation.

Cairns was declared as the region to host the 2017 World Cassowary Day.
