Kaarakin Rescuers Need Your Help
Kaarakin, Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre is one of our exhibitors at the WIMWA 2015 Summit
Kaarakin, The Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre (BCCC) is a small non-government organisation dedicated to the conservation of the threatened black cockatoos of the south west corner of Western Australia. BCCC carries out its work under the direction of a Board and through the tireless dedication and commitment of a few staff and many volunteers, who manage everything from animal husbandry for our resident black cockatoos, to assisting scientific research, participating in conservation initiatives and educating the community.
BCCC’s core objective is the conservation and rehabilitation of black cockatoos with specific facilities designed to house and rehabilitate sick and injured birds. BCCC is the largest black cockatoo conservation centre in Western Australia. By working together with other agencies, the BCCC aims to build strong partnerships, drawing on each agency’s
strengths and expertise in order to benefit the recovery of black cockatoo’s in Western Australia.
“Our magnificent local black cockatoos are under threat. However, there are many things that the community can do to protect them. By helping the BCCC’s work to conserve black cockatoos by rehabilitating injured birds for release back into the wild, revegetating areas of degraded bushland and educating the community, facilitating research, future generations of Western Australians should be able to enjoy these beautiful birds in the wild.”
