Gumnuts for Zanda Planting Event

Come make a difference for our native wildlife!

Developed in conjunction with Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre, ‘Gumnuts for Zanda’ is a revegetation project to re-establish native habitat for Black Cockatoos on two hectares of disused orchard in Martin. First the land will be cleared of remnant citrus trees, and then the area will be fenced to protect the seedlings from kangaroo and livestock. The ground will be raked and weeds removed to prepare for new plantings of marri, jarrah and banksia. We plan to plant 3,000 seedlings this winter that will grow over the next 20 years to provide food and shelter for the Carnaby’s, Baudin’s and Forest Red-Tailed Black Cockatoos who migrate to the area annually.

Kaarakin staff and volunteers will be there to demonstrate how the planting will be done and to give you a bit of background about the site and its potential.

Morning tea will be provided.

Be prepared for physical work (similar to gardening activities). Wear closed-in shoes, gardening clothes, a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen, gardening gloves, bring a water bottle. Bring wet weather gear if it is drizzly. The event may have to be rescheduled if the weather is wild.

PLEASE EMAIL education@kaarakin.com TO REGISTER YOUR INTEREST in volunteering to revegetate with us on Saturday 13 July, 8:30am-12:00pm.

If there is enough interest, and volutneers are willing to pay for a tour, we could even arrange for an hours tour at Kaarakin. Tour money is one way to keep the centre going, as Kaarakin cares for hundreds of black cockatoos in rehabilitation.
