Get involved in conservation events and education happening in your area. Here are a few things coming up.
Glossy Black Count
The Glossy Black Conservancy, in partnership with Birdlife Australia is holding Australia’s first Great Glossy Count on Saturday 26 March, 2022.
The South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoo is at risk of population decline after losing many of its feed trees in the devastating bushfires of 2019-2020.
Data collected during the Great Glossy Count will support vital bushfire recovery and conservation work by informing habitat management for these birds.
But we need your help! We’re seeking volunteer citizen scientists in Queensland, New South Wales, ACT, and Victoria to help survey the South-eastern Glossy Black-Cockatoo on Saturday 26 March 2022.
As a citizen scientist, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in training to hone your bird and feed tree identification skills, and then collect data that is critical for supporting the recovery of Glossy Black-Cockatoos.
Join the City of Gold Coast and Natura Pacific for a screening of these short documentaries and hear more from Dr Mark Nadir Runkovski and special guest-speakers: Dr Guy Castley (Griffith University), Samantha Morris (Wombat Creative).

Our commitment to innovation and the environment has resulted in the development of our latest technology the GroNATIVE App. The collaborative project was undertaken in partnership with Griffith University and the Queensland Government. The platform serves as an easy to use resource for South East Queensland communities to select and integrate native plant species into garden and landscaping projects, promoting biodiversity and supporting the wider ecosystem.
Gold Coast Waterwatch engages with early learning centres, primary schools, high schools, community groups and community events to educate participants on the importance of healthy waterways and catchments. It is part of Waterwatch Australia, a nation-wide program that was launched over twenty years ago in 1993. Gold Coast Waterwatch was supported by City of Gold Coast from 2009 to 2016 with the aim of increasing the community's awareness of water quality and catchment health issues for their local and regional waterways through active participation in water quality monitoring. The program now continues to be offered by the Natura Pacifics' Education team and is available to schools and community throughout Gold Coast catchment areas
