Friends of the Black Cockatoo

Posted: November 19, 2020 in Uncategorized

This week in my search for good news stories, I spent time at the Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre. What a great experience it was to see how this organisation is working so hard to protect the black cockatoo and to care for the environment in which this magnificent bird lives.

Kaarakin provides clinic facilities to care for injured birds that are brought in, and a careful rehabilitation programme is undertaken. This work is done in conjunction with other organisations including the Perth Zoo to ensure that when they are released the best opportunity is provided for their survival.

But more than that Kaarakin is working hard at protecting the environment and helping people to think through the issues that will affect the long-term sustainability of the black cockatoo and other native birds and animals,

Kaarakin isn’t open to the public, but paid tours can be arranged, that also assist in the overall running of the organisation and the sustainability of its operations.

It was an absolute delight to visit Kaarakin, so I hope you’ll enjoy the video.
