Earlier this year, the Australian Geographic Society ran a two month, nation-wide appeal in conjunction with Australian Geographic Retail stores for Australia’s ‘Threatened Black-Cockatoos’.
One of the cockatoos to benefit was our very own South-eastern Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo, with the campaign raising just over $12,000 for recovery efforts for this species.
The Red-tail Recovery Team and BirdLife Australia are thrilled with the result and would like to sincerely thank the Australian Geographic Society for all their hard work and generosity in helping to raise such a substantial amount of cash for these wonderful cockies.
We would also very much like to thank all those who donated towards the cause.
The funds will be used to support recovery activities including those that monitor the population, improve habitat conditions, minimise key threats and build community capacity in recovery efforts.
The Australian Geographic Society is a not-for profit organisation dedicated to supporting scientific research, conserving the environment, encouraging the spirit of discovery and spreading the knowledge of Australia to Australians and the world.
