Tree Planting for Carnaby's Cockatoos 63

Murdoch University is well-known as a cockatoo haven, because of our large areas of mature trees that are good food sources and places for them to rest. This planting event will expand the numbers of food and roosting trees and shelter plants available to our unique and endangered wildlife, as well as contributing to urban area greening.

Be part of history as we turn Wagtail Reserve into a thriving new habitat area for our iconic wildlife.
