Black cockatoos might be the talkative larrikins of the skies, but they need our help


OCCASSIONALLY SPOTTED flying overhead in groups, Australia’s vivacious black cockatoos can appear as if they haven’t a care in the world.

However, populations in Western Australia and South Australia are experiencing harsh declines due to habitat loss. There are three species under threat in WA; Baudin’s cockatoo, Carnaby’s cockatoo and the forest red-tailed black cockatoo.

The south-eastern red-tailed black cockatoo in SA is also now considered endangered. Our fundraiser will support the expert bird rehabilitation programs at Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre, as well as the crucial research carried out by the South-Eastern Red-tailed Black Cockatoo Recovery Project.
