Mapping Glossy Blacks

 13 June 2018

The Glossy Black-Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus lathami) is one of the more threatened species of cockatoo in Australia and is listed as vulnerable in NSW.

 

HELP TO MAP THESE SPECIAL BIRDS AND THEIR HABITATS

 

Surveys of Glossy Black-Cockatoos are challenging, as the birds are often in forested and remote areas. This is where citizen science can help. The more people out there, keeping an eye out and then reporting their sightings, the better! 

 

We are asking people to report:

  • sightings of the Glossy Black-Cockatoos;
  • evidence of their feeding; and
  • the location of any potential nest hollows.
