How can you help Cassowaries on the roads?
* Raise the awareness to drivers in cassowary areas with signage
* With habitat being fragmented by roads and clearing of habitat, cassowaries need to cross the roads.
* Slow down in areas where cassowaries live, slower speeds give us more time to see the birds and react to help it get safely off the road.
* Scan the road ahead and the sides of the roads for anything that may move in front of your vehicle.
* Ask your passenger/s to help you look for wildlife - more eyes looking is better for everyone to safely get to their destinations. You can make a game of it too, who is the first one to spot the wildlife first? Who has the keen eyesight in your vehicle?
