Black Cockatoo Crisis - Fundraising Picnic
Black Cockatoo Crisis - Fundraising PicnicMahara Park85 Aldersyde RdPiesse Brook,
SAVE THE DATE: BLACK COCKATOO CRISIS DOCUMENTARY FUNDRAISING PICNIC - SUNDAY JUNE 12th 1-5pm at our beautiful family property MAHARA PARK 85 Aldersyde Rd Piesse Brook.
There will be food and drinks, kids art workshops, real cockatoos, silent auction, live music and more surprises to be announced soon! Stay tuned!
BLACK COCKATOO CRISIS is a documentary being produced and directed by the award winning filmmaker Jane Hammond (Cry of the Forests - A Western Australian Story, A Crude Injustice).
The event is to raise funds to help complete the film as soon as possible. So far they have raised over $55,000 (35%) of the goal of $170,000! Every little bit helps.
Western Australia's iconic black cockatoos are in crisis. Their numbers have fallen dramatically over the past few decades and all three species in the south west of WA could become extinct in just 20 years unless something is done to protect their habitats. With the loss of the banksia woodlands on the Swan Coastal Plain to housing, Carnaby's Black Cockatoos have come to depend on the once vast exotic pine plantations on Perth's northern fringe.
These pine plantations supply up to half of all the food needed to keep the population of Carnaby's alive but these too are disappearing. Within the next two years the remaining 6000ha of pines are slated for clearing leaving the cockatoos facing possible starvation.
Meanwhile the Baudin's Black Cockatoos are literally being shot out of the sky in an unequal battle for food with apple and pear growers in Perth's hills. And the Red Tail Forest Black Cockatoos are under threat from the loss of nesting hollows and declining habitat.
Black Cockatoo Crisis looks at the plight of our special cockatoos and what we can do to stop these threatened species disappearing for ever. The clock is ticking on our black cockatoos. Will we save them in time?

Environment Matters - Next steps for nature conservation in WA
Environment Matters - Next steps for nature conservation in WACity West Lotteries House2 Delhi StWest Perth,
WA is home to unique plants and animals found nowhere else in the world. But every year the number of endangered species grows, and the available habitat for wildlife shrinks. In many places the expanding exploitation of natural resources and shifts in climate pose unprecedented threats to our ecosystems.
Join CCWA for our next Environment Matters event as we give an overview of the current state of conservation in WA and hear from our line-up of guest speakers on the all-important question – where to from here?
We need bold, urgent and decisive action, with new ways of thinking and working together to tackle these environmental challenges and protect our precious wildlife and biodiversity in a rapidly changing environment.
This is a free event and light refreshments will be provided.
Can't attend in person? We can send you a copy of the recording - just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the distribution list.
We respectfully acknowledge that we will be meeting on unceded Whadjuk Noongar country, and pay our deepest respects to traditional custodians and their Elders past and present. We wish to acknowledge the enduring culture and connection of First Nations people in WA, who have been caring for country since time immemorial.
