Tracking juvenile cassowaries on Cape Tribulation using GPS-based telemetry

This project used GPS-based telemetry to follow the movements of three juvenile southern cassowaries. The orphaned birds were rehabilitated at the DERM facility at Garners Beach for up to 12 months. Their movements were tracked for between 6 and 20 weeks after release.
