We would love to hear from you! Do you have black cockatoos hanging out in your patch? In the Peel-Harvey catchment we are frequented by 3 species of black cockatoo, the Forest Red-Tailed Black Cockatoo (with distinguished red tail feathers), and 2 species of white-tailed black cockatoo, the Baudin’s cockatoo and the Carnaby’s cockatoo. All 3 species are threatened (the whites endangered and the reds vulnerable). To help us protect these beautiful birds we need your help to identify their nesting locations. If you think you might know where black cockatoos are nesting in tree hollows within the Peel-Harvey, please contact Megan LeRoy on 6369 8800 or email megan.leroy@peel-harvey.org.au. If you are a landholder near a nesting site, you may be eligible for financial assistance to improve and maintain habitat.
