Great Cocky Count Workshop
The Great Cocky Count will be held on the evening of Sunday 3 April.
Birdlife is holding a workshop at CREEC to raise awareness about Black-Cockatoos and the Great Cocky Count.
Learn about the three species of black-cockatoos in southwest WA, their identification, biology, ecology, behaviour, threats and how to get involved and participate in the survey. It’s easy, fun and every survey counts!
The Great Cocky Count (GCC) is a long-term citizen science survey and the biggest single survey for black-cockatoos in Western Australia. On one night in autumn, volunteers monitor and count black-cockatoos as they arrive at dusk to roost at known or potential sites. Records submitted from across the southwest provide a snapshot of threatened black-cockatoo populations, and over time this has helped us to quantify changes in black-cockatoo numbers, as well as monitor their movements and identify and protect critical habitat.
For more information or to view the reports from previous Great Cocky Counts head to the Birdlife website.
Light refreshments provided.
