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.

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.

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.

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!

You too could take action for cockatoo conservation and volunteer at Kaarakin! We always welcome more reliable, hard working people to join our team.

There are three species of black cockatoo in Western Australia, all of them under threat of extinction! Donate now to help save these WA native birds.

Although we are not open to the general public, private professionally led guided tours can be arranged for a donation to the centre.
