Gurrbum II

Building a corridor for the endangered Southern Cassowary

Habitat

Gurrbum II is the second part of an ambitious project, initiated in 2020, which created a critical and strategic habitat for the endangered Southern Cassowary in Queensland.

This second stage will enable the expansion of the habitat, creating a larger area where these birds - and indeed other fauna - can thrive. The site is located within the Smith’s Gap Corridor, an expanse that connects protected land across the Wet Tropics of Queensland UNESCO World Heritage Area. The Australian Government Threatened Species Prospectus identifies revegetation of Smith’s Gap as a priority project for Cassowary recovery.
