Why should you care?

We need to care for over 30 black cockatoos in our clinic who are fed a special diet of seeds and care for over 150 black cockatoos in various stages of rehabilitation. These black cockatoos are threatened with extinction in the wild.

As the impact of Covid-19 escalates across Australia, our staff and volunteers are continuing to provide critical daily care to Western Australia’s injured and unwell black cockatoos. Our volunteers travel up to 350 kms per week to rescue black cockatoos as far north as Bindoon and as far South as Pinjara. Our clinic volunteer dedicated an incredible amount of hours every day to unsure the well being of our patients.Feeding might be required up to three-four times per day for young black cockatoos.

Currently we have more than 30 birds in the clinic with injuries from car strikes, raven attacks, one that had fishing wire entangled around its wing and this Forest red tailed black cockatoo which was shot! Several cockatoos are suffering from hind limb paralysis which requires pain relief, antibiotics and crop feeding.

Our work to rehabilitate and return black cockatoos to their natural habitat is important. The vital work that we undertake is funded by donations and fundraising. Covid 19 has significantly impacted our ability to raise funds from tours, events and education programs. As such our main fundraising event, our tour weekend which usually takes place in May was cancelled due to the current situation.
