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.
