Billabong Sanctuary is proud to be a campaign partner and fully endorse Rainforest Rescue’s Save the Cassowary Campaign.
Billabong Sanctuary is a small family owned, native Australian wildlife park in Townsville. Our focus is the conservation and preservation of all Australian wildlife and their habitats. We have a strong sense of responsibility to promote the conservation of wildlife endemic to the Wet Tropics, of which the Southern Cassowary is perhaps the most unique.
Our Southern Cassowary is a 30-year old male call Yarrabah. He originated from the Yarrabah region of Tropical North Queensland. Billabong Sanctuary has successfully bred with Yarrabah in previous years and we hope to continue that success in the years to come. Yarrabah, as an ambassador for his species provides our guests with an opportunity to get up close with a Cassowary so that they can fully appreciate the beauty and prehistoric nature of this remarkable creature.
Billabong Sanctuary is strongly committed to Cassowary conservation and we feel that by aligning with Rainforest Rescue in their Save the Cassowary campaign it will strengthen our position to deliver that conservation message to our guests more effectively. With a clear and consistent national campaign reinforced by zoos and other key stakeholders the goal of saving the Cassowary is certainly achievable.
