DEBATES - Tuesday 23 May 1995 Some years ago, the Guides adopted the black cockatoo as the Northern Territory emblem and its importance is now being respected by a new project whereby the Girl Guides Association has adopted a red-tailed black cockatoo at the Territory Wildlife Park. NT Guides were recently recognised for their significant contribution to our Northern Territory community when they won the Department o f Sport and Recreation's VIP Association o f the Year Award, which has a high level o f recognition for the hard-working members o f the association. The Volunteer Involvement Program is a joint national program o f the Australian Sports Commission. Australian Society o f Sport Administrators, Confederation o f Australian Sport and state Departments o f Sport and Recreation. The Northern Territory Guides Association encourages its members to take part in community service, both locally and nationally. In 1994, they assisted with the Girl Guides project to help the Salvation Army fund the cost o f running holiday camps for disadvantaged families, helping to raise $96 000 nationally. NT Guides contributed 116 'peace packs to a national project to send basic packs o f clothing and school needs to African children. Alice Springs members raised $4000 to send back-to-school packs to students living in drought-affected areas o f Queensland.
