Cockatoos Watch Their Future GROW!

Happy Volunteers Planting for the Cockatoos
Happy Volunteers Planting for the Cockatoos

Welcome Friends of Cockatoo Conservation,

The last three months have been busy for our volunteer teams.  With winter in full swing, we have been planting thousands of tree seedlings and preparing planting sites to help other community groups with their tree planting efforts for the cockatoos.

 

In July our volunteers had some important visitors to one of our project sites to supervise our planting efforts.  A large flock of Red-tailed Black Cockatoos sat in the trees, and watched on as we planted native seedlings which will grow into food and roosting sources for this vulnerable species.  Red tails are notoriously cheeky and playful birds, and our volunteers watched as they crash-landed into each other on the tree branches and mucked about in the sky. 

 

Conservation volunteer, Nanae Arato, travelled from Japan to take part on our program, and was excited to see the red tails.  She said, “It’s amazing to see the birds that we are planting these seedlings for, they are beautiful!”  The rest of the team also enjoyed the red tails’ visit as it really hit home, how all their efforts will directly help the local wildlife.

 

From July to the end of August, our volunteers spent time at a number of key sites for the black cockatoos around Perth.   These included bushland sites in Nedlands and Inglewood.  These inner suburban sites form important green corridors, that provide protection for the black cockatoos as they search for food and roosting sites.  Revegetating and maintaining these corridors forms an important part of the rehabilitation plan for these birds.

 

We would like to thank our supporters and volunteers.  Without your support, Conservation Volunteers Australia wouldn’t be able to make a difference to this important cause.  If you are able to donate again, we would really appreciate it – every donation will help us to continue achieving these great conservation results and give these beautiful birds a better chance at coming back from the brink of extinction.  For the rest of the year, our volunteers will be focusing on the essential maintenance of the thousands of seedlings that we planted over winter to give the best possible chance for these new cockatoo habitats to grow and thrive.
