Annual Glossy Black Cockatoo survey – volunteers needed

Have you seen me? If you haven’t, perhaps you have heard me? Sometimes the only way you will know that I’m around is the quiet clicking you may hear in the Allocasuarinas as I bite open the cones to feast on the tiny seeds.

I am a Glossy Black-Cockatoo and I need your help!

The ANNUAL GLOSSY BLACK-COCKATOO SURVEY is one of the quietest species of cockatoo and most people in the Redlands don’t know that we are home to these beautiful birds. Glossy Black-Cockatoo sightings have been reported on the mainland, North Stradbroke Island and Bay Islands. Unfortunately, it is also one of the more threatened species of cockatoo in Australia and is listed as vulnerable in Queensland.

ANNUAL GLOSSY BLACK-COCKATOO SURVEY

The Redland Council, as part of the Glossy Black Conservancy, will be conducting its annual survey in the Redlands to assist with the conservation of these magnificent birds and their habitat requirements. We are calling for volunteers to help with the survey event taking place on Sunday, 14th May 2017

To take part in the survey you need to attend An informative workshop to learn about the Glossy Black- Cockatoo and obtain your survey sheets and area.

Workshop dates and times:

  • Wednesday 3rd May 6.00pm to 8.30pm
  • Thursday 11th May 6.00pm to 8.30pm

Workshops are being held at the Redland IndigiScapes Centre, 17 Runnymede Road, Capalaba.
