Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre

Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre is a not-for-profit conservation organisation with a focus on saving and rehabilitating sick & injured Western Australian native wild black cockatoos. We rescue wild black cockatoos in distress – often having been shot, hit by cars, fallen out of a nest or attacked by bees/cats or other birds – and rehabilitate them in our aviaries on site in the Perth Hills. Sadly, many of the birds we rescue to do not survive. The ones that do make it through their initial veterinary treatment at Perth Zoo come back to us for intensive care by our dedicated volunteers. After their treatment, Kaarakins aim is always to release. Candidates for release are then placed in our large flight aviary to strengthen their flight muscles – like a lap pool for injured cockatoos. Finally comes the release day. Before release, birds flight tested and banded, In conjunction with the Department of Environment and Conservation, Kaarakin identifies the area for release.
