Cassowaries Notes

Increasing conservation/development at conflicts at Mission Beach


“An integral part of the Djiru people’s relationship with the rainforest is the gunduy(cassowary), which is important to the health of both the people and the rainforest”.


Google Scholar Papers (2014-2019)

Rainforest disturbances affect the population density of northern cassowary.

The cassowary as a tourism icon:
Tourists agree that cassowary as flagship bird for tourism

Visual lures increase camera-trap detection of the southern cassowary
The use of camera traps with lures is a practical and cost-efficient technique for the rapid detection of cassowaries at a site and lends itself to studies of population structure, size and trends.

Using citizen‐collected wildlife sightings to predict traffic strike hot spots for threatened species

Low cost,although not replacing systematic study , to Understand vehicle induced mortality and To ensure Effective Allocation of resources when Implementing wildlife Strike mitigation.


Threats
Only 20–25% of former cassowary habitat remains, and much of it is still under pressure.
Threats to the southern cassowary include:• vehicle traffic — road kills are a major cause of adult cassowary deaths
• dogs, which attack and kill chicks and juveniles
• feral pigs, which damage cassowary habitat.


Recovery action
To survive, cassowaries need large areas of rainforest. There is a need for protection of existing habitat and greater control of dogs and pigs.
As well as creating protected areas such as national parks, some local residents are establishing nurseries of cassowary food plants to restore rainforest on cleared land and create corridors to link remaining patches of vegetation.
