Cassowaries are found in the far north tropics of QLD. The Australian population of the Southern Cassowary has suffered a severe decline in numbers due to the destruction of their habitat, vehicle strikes, dog attacks and competition and predation by feral animals.
They are listed as endangered under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
