Twenty endangered Carnaby’s cockatoos released into the wild

TWENTY endangered Carnaby’s cockatoos that have spent up to a year rehabilitating from car strikes and other trauma have been released into the wild. The birds, which are endemic to Western Australia, were released from The Vines and Kensington last week. Department of Parks and Wildlife officer Karen Smith said all the cockatoos had been hit by cars or suffered another trauma that prevented them from being able to fly. They have been rehabilitated at the Black Cockatoo Rehabilitation Centre in Martin and the Native Animal Rescue centre in Malaga. Read more on the Perth Now website.
