Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre cares for injured and orphaned black cockatoos from across Perth on a daily basis.

The tours raise much-needed funds for the non-profit, volunteer-run centre, which rehabilitates and releases endangered WA black cockatoos.

The public will have the chance to interact with the cockatoos, meet resident emus and kangaroos, view the breeding aviaries and visit the new dingo enclosure.

There will also be information on the centre�s revegetation program, which provides habitat for the black cockatoos and educates the community on what they can do to help preserve the birds.

The centre cares for injured and orphaned black cockatoos from across Perth on a daily basis.

It can take up to 18 months for a bird to be strong enough to be released after it has undergone extensive care.

The money raised from the tours will go towards the cockatoos� rehabilitation.

The tours will leave every 30 minutes and will be limited to a maximum of 15 people per tour.

Registrations are essential. Email fundraising@kaara-kin.com or call 9390 2288 with your preferred tour time and the number of people attending.

The cost is children (5-15 years) $5, adults $10, families $30. Pre-pay or pay cash (only) on the day.

Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre is at 322 Mills Road East, Martin.
