Cockatoos and Animals

While Kaarakin is heavily focused on the conservation of Black Cockatoos, we are also home to Wildlife Australia who rescue and care for other native fauna.

Black Cockatoos

More than one hundred and fifty black cockatoos from each of the three species (Carnaby’s, Baudin’s, and Forest Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo) are currently at Kaarakin.

These resident birds get social and natural enrichment to keep their minds active and healthy.

Dingoes

Our adult pair of Pilbara dingoes, Max and Mia, had puppies in 2011. Four of those pups continue to live on site with their parents, and are all walked every day – a task which keeps our dingo handler volunteers very busy!

We also have two Alpine dingoes, Alex and Amy, living on site. They are very friendly so make sure you ask to meet them when you visit.

Kangaroos

There are, grey and red kangaroos on site and caring for these animals take a bit of time. We are planting to try and get some more natural feed and environment for them.

They are quite used to people, but sure do take a lot of feeding!

Other birds

Galahs, emus, and a black swan reside at Kaarakin.

Some were left behind by the previous tenants of the property, and some have since been handed in by members of the public.

Support our Cause

Kaarakin relies on sponsorship and donations to stay open. Without your continued support, we would not be able to continue our extensive conservation efforts for the black cockatoo. Every donation and every dollar counts. 100% of your donation helps to conserve cockatoos.
