Thinking Green: Great Cocky Count (Ellenbrook)

Next date: Monday, 15 February 2021 | 05:00 PM to 06:45 PM

Learn about the Great Cocky Count and how you can get involved.

Please note that this is a program for ages 12+.

The Great Cocky Count is a long-term citizen science survey and the biggest single survey for black-cockatoos in Western Australia. During one night in autumn, volunteers monitor and count black-cockatoos as they arrive at dusk to roost at known sites.

Records submitted from across the southwest provide a snapshot of threatened black-cockatoo populations, and over time this has helped us quantify the changes in their numbers. During this workshop, participants will learn about the three species of blackcockatoos in southwest WA, their identification, biology, ecology, behaviour, threats and how to get involved with the survey. Presented by BirdLife WA.

In accordance with hygiene requirements, social distancing will be maintained throughout this program and hand sanitizing stations and cleaning products will be available for use.

Please book in as spaces are limited. For all inquiries contact Ellenbrook Community Library (08) 9207 8787.
