Native ARC receives and treats hundreds of Water Birds in W.A. Black Swans are just one of the beautiful species that are affected by illness, road accidents, fishing line/gear injuries, who are admitted and treated by our experienced and dedicated Volunteers. Recently a Rehabilitated Swan was released back home as told by our valued Volunteer, Jocelyn; “I released the Swan at Herdsman Lake last weekend and it went beautifully. The swan swam off initially and joined a group of swans.
After about 15 minutes of observing the released Swan, I walked toward the car to leave. He was about 50m away at this point. He was very grateful and came back to thank us. He must have been watching and swam back to say Cheerio! It was a wonderful experience seeing our hard work pay off and another animal back free where he belongs.
