Since 1999 the Wet Tropics Management Authorityâ€™s Cassowary Awards have recognised recipients from a range of backgrounds including farmers, scientists, conservationists, artists and tour operators.
The diverse award recipients have all made an exceptional effort towards the protection and management of the World Heritage Area, often devoting many years of their life to their passion.
A full honour roll of all recipients since the inaugural Cassowary Awards in 1999 is available below.
Please note: This honour roll contains the names of deceased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
*2017 Awards were postponed and held in March 2018.
