Mamu the Cassowary Orphan

13th Aug 2011

Mamu the cassowary chick was rescued on the Palmerston range by wildlife rangers and was passed on to DERM (Dept. of the Environment and Resource Management) staff for rehabilitation. Unfortunately, Mamu became a little too accustomed to humans which meant his survival after being released back in to the wild was in doubt.

As a result, Mamu has been adopted by Cairns Tropical Zoo at Palm Cove. He will live here with an adult cassowary and will one day participate in the zoo industry’s captive breeding program.
