Black Cockatoo Gallery is affiliated with Wildlife Care & Rescue, a not-for-profit volunteer organisation who takes all wildlife into care when required, for various reasons such as being orphaned, injured or just misplaced. Once they have recovered and returned to full health, the team of volunteers return them back to the wild.

Being a wildlife carer is not just about looking after sick or injured wildlife. It is understanding their needs, their connection and place in the environment. This is why protection of their habitat is equally important as caring for the wildlife, and that is why the Black Cockatoo Gallery is not just an wildlife refuge; it is a place where people can come and learn about our unique environment and at the same time do something to protect it.

Wildlife Care & Rescure are all volunteers and any assistance is appreciated. You can help by becoming a member, or providing a donation. As they are a not-for-profit organisation, all donations are tax deductible.


"If you’re always there for others, then in the time of need, someone will be there for you."
