A black cockatoo’s journey back to the wild: What to do when you found an injured black cockatoo?

 

A few weeks ago, I was given the opportunity to contribute to the creation of an article published by Particle WA (powered by Scitech). I provided some photos and videos clips to be used in the article and the video for A black cockatoo’s journey back to the wild. I am really happy about the result and this is a great way for Kaarakin to be recognised as the premier black cockatoo rescue centre in Australia.

The article describes what to do in a black cockatoo emergency. Vehicle strikes, poisoning and raven attacks are the main causes for a “black cockatoo emergency”. If you find an injured black cockatoo, wrap it in a blanket and put it in a box before taking it to the nearest vet. The amazing work of Perth Zoo is also depicted. Many black cockatoos need to be taken to the zoo for x-rays and treatment before they are able to be given an ok. Then, they are moved to one of the rescue centres in Perth. In most cases, they move to Kaarakin the Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre, where they will become stronger before being released. It happens that black cockatoos can stay at Kaarakin for a few years before being released. Hence, a Black Cockatoo Journey Back To The Wild.
