Golden-neck Cassowary

One of the largest birds in the world, the Golden-neck Cassowary is found in the tropical rainforests of Papua New Guinea and Irian Jaya on the island of New Guinea. The species is famous for its powerful kick which it uses for defense.




The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
