Opal was found on the ground as a chick with no sign of her parents.

She was very sick & skinny and for the first 3 weeks we did not think she would survive. 

An infection in her foot joints meant that also for the first month she was unable to perch.

2 years on, she was finally given a clean bill of health, however she was too tame to be released back into the wild. 

Lucky for Opal she was invited to live at Kaarakin Black Cockatoo sanctuary in Perth, to be an ambassador for her species. 

 

This shoot was her last day in Sydney before she  flew to Western Australia.

In the wild Yellow-tailed black cockatoos have a "vulnerable" conservtion status in South Australia. 

Overall they have been in rapid decline because of native habitat clearance, with a loss of food supply and nest sites.
