We first met #NextGenRainforestRescuers Amber & Penny back in March 2021. Since then, we’ve featured them in our blogs not once, but twice more… and the good news just keeps coming. So, without further ado, we present “Amber & Penny – Part 4”.

“We have been raising Cassowary Awareness through our local Council’s Play Street events. We want to educate & teach people that the Southern Cassowary is an important, endangered animal & that we need to help save them, and their rainforest habitat.” – Amber

As Amber’s told us before “You don’t need to be a grown-up to make a difference” and she’s definitely proving this point, all while inspiring her little sister Penny to do the same.

In January 2022, both Amber & Penny were awarded the title of “Junior Citizen of the Year” by their local council. You can read more about this incredible achievement here.

“Play Streets brings the community together & brings happiness to everyone. We share games, crafts, and have lots of fun.” – Penny

And, if that’s not enough, Amber has now built a website to raise awareness about the Southern Cassowary & their rainforest habitat!

“Inspired by a school project I built a website raising Cassowary awareness and how they are an endangered animal that needs our help to protect them. Go to www.cassowaryawareness.com– Amber
