Dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick and injured wild native black cockatoos, Kaarakin enables injured black cockatoos to be rehabilitated and, if possible, returned to the wild.
The Centre is also home to a number of birds that cannot be released, and who assist in their efforts to educate the community about the need to protect Australia’s unique fauna.
Arc employees had the opportunity to take photos with alpine dingoes Alex and Amy, and several black cockatoos.
Kaarakin Animal Management Officer and Education Officer Sam Clarke thanked the Arc group for their volunteer work.
“It was a great day and very successful. Everyone was very passionate and eager to plant, even in the harder areas of the site with the harder soil,” Mr Clarke said.
“Managing to get all 500 successfully planted, guarded and watered in was a big bonus!”
All Arc employees are entitled to one leave day each year to volunteer for a registered community or charity organisation as part of the Volunteering Program
