Why it is so important for us to plant the food source and shelter for native birds and other species:

http://www.dec.wa.gov.au/management-and-protection/plants/native-vegetation.html


"Australia is one of the world's seventeen centres of 'mega-diversity' of plants and animals. The south west of Western Australia is known as one of the world's thirty four biodiversity "hotspots" with some of the richest and most threatened reservoirs of plant and animal life on earth. In some areas of the state, such as the Avon-Wheatbelt bio-region, ninety three percent of native vegetation has already been cleared.


Clearing and consequential salinity are having a devastating effect on biodiversity through the direct loss of plant species, and the associated loss of mammals, birds and other animals which depend upon areas of bush for food and shelter." Name of Project: Tree Planting for Black Cockatoos Objectives of Project:

1. Rehabilitation of a section of a 100 acre property with approx. 1,000 suitable plants for Black Cockatoos in the South West of WA (Boyup Brook situated on the Blackwood River).

2. Provide food source and shelter for Black Cockatoos

3. Rehabilitate land and potentially reduce salinity

4. Encourage dialogue and positive involvement by the local community and the view that others in the area might follow suit.
