Come along and view this highly regarded locally produced film about the three species of Black Cockatoos endemic to Australia’s South West: the Ngolak (Baudin’s Black Cockatoo), Ngolyenok (Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo) and the Karak (Forest Red-tailed Black Cockatoo). Highly sociable, monogamous, and long-lived, their role in the forest includes pollinating flowers, spreading seeds and ridding trees of grubs. All three species have been experiencing severe population decline over the last few decades. Threats to Black Cockatoos are primarily through forest clearing and loss of habitat, although road kills, illegal shooting
and fires also take their toll.
Those attending this event might also find the tour of the Kaarakin Black Cockatoo Conservation Centre on Wednesday 24 May of interest.
