Read a report in the paper last week about the decline of Cassowaries in
Cairns. Apparently down from a few dozen to only a couple of individuals in
just a very few short years. Does anyone now the real story here? What is
the cause of the decline? More clearing? Road kills? Do dogs and cats get
the young?
