The Great Cocky Count Workshop

​16 February 2017​

The Great Cocky Count Workshop is for anyone who would like to participate in one of the biggest Citizen Science Projects in Australia, on Sunday 9 April.  This workshop will give specific information about the Red-tailed and Carnaby Cockatoos as well as the opportunity to register directly for the event in April.

2017 will be the ninth Great Cocky Count. Volunteers will monitor known roost sites and count black cockatoos as they come in to their evening roosts. The data collected from across the south west provides a snapshot of black cockatoo numbers and identify any changes in numbers. Across the south west of Australia black cockatoo numbers are in rapid decline, the population continues to decrease at a rate of 5-15% per year. 

The workshop will give information about the cocky count, their preferred habitat and behaviour, as well as the opportunity to register directly for the event. The Workshop is being run by Birdlife Australia in conjunction with the City of Kwinana.
