We are inspired by this young eco warrior – Katie from Perth. She recently celebrated her 10th birthday and asked us to supply her with 20 of our 'Save the Cassowary BioCups' for her cassowary-themed birthday party. In lieu of birthday presents she asked for donations for Rainforest Rescue’s Cassowary Conservation Program. The results: 53 rainforest seedlings planted in last month by our very own Director, Richard Fine and his family.
