Cock-a-hoop over fund

Mandurah Coastal Times - - FRONT PAGE -

SCHOOL chil­dren on a walk through Man­durah’s Mar­ley Re­serve re­ceived an ex­tra bonus with the dis­cov­ery of a baby red­tailed black cock­a­too in an ar­ti­fi­cial tube.

The North Man­durah Pri­mary School Year 3 stu­dents were ac­com­pa­nied on the walk along the Cli­mate Watch Trail by John Tonkin Col­lege Year 10 bushranger cadets as part of the Col­lege’s in­volve­ment in the Duke of Ed­in­burgh’s Award.

The cadets helped the younger stu­dents find out about cli­mate change, na­ture re­serves and pro­tect­ing wildlife, tak­ing pho­to­graphs and record­ing data, led by en­vi­ron­men­tal­ist Joe Tonga.

Mr Tonga said it was highly un­usual to find a red-tailed black cock­a­too in a man-made tube.
