Recently I went into Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to do a interview on cassowaries. The Southern Cassowary is a Ratiltie. A Ratiltie simply means a large flightless bird. These amazing creatures are extremely important for the rainforests of northern Queensland as they disperse seeds around the rainforest helping it to expand. As well as eating fruit these birds also eat fungi and small insects. The Southern Cassowary is very misunderstood. It is sometimes labelled as the world's most dangerous bird but the truth is that it has only killed one person. And that person was chasing after it with a dog! Unfortunately they are extremely rare in the wild. Their threats are habitat destruction, dog attacks, getting hit by cars and climate change.
Watch my interview with Jordan to learn more about Cassowaries and what Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is doing to help save them.
This is my last Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Conservation Interview. I would like to thank Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and especially the staff who gave up their time to allow me to interview them. Thank you everyone for all your support with this series of interviews. I hope everyone enjoyed watching them over the past year.
Thank you for watching
