You may (or may not) be aware but there are no glossie black cockatoo homelands in Western Australia AND there are no glossies on public display either.
So what do West Aussies do when they want to see a glossie??  Well a group of youth we found out in a suburb of Perth have created an art exhibition all about them!  It's quite amazing, and humans from all over Australia have chipped in to make this a fabulous experience - from donating their pet glossies feathers so West Australians can feel and touch a glossy feather, to permitting people to use their photos of glossies to model their art upon, to providing virtual messages of support.
It's a fabulous, small exhibition out at Ellenbrook Arts at 34 Main Street ELLENBROOK.  Running until the 10th December 2022.  Be sure to check the opening hours before you head out there!
