The Wet Trop­ics Man­age­ment Au­thor­ity’s Cassowary Awards were es­tab­lished in 1999 to cel­e­brate and sup­port the out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions made to­wards the con­ser­va­tion and preser­va­tion of the Wet Trop­ics World Her­itage Area. The Cassowary Awards seek to recog­nise ex­cep­tional con­ser­va­tion ef­forts from a di­verse range of in­di­vid­u­als, groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions in­clud­ing farm­ers, con­ser­va­tion­ists, stu­dents and ed­u­ca­tional bod­ies as well as sci­en­tists, artists and tourism op­er­a­tors. The Cassowary Awards is an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to learn more about the cut­ting edge of World Her­itage pro­tec­tion and say ‘thank you’ to those on its front lines. Re­cip­i­ents will be an­nounced at a spe­cial cer­e­mony held at Tjapukai Abo­rig­i­nal Cul­tural Park, on Satur­day, 10 March.
