The Great Inland Glossy Count

The Great Inland Glossy Count is calling for citizen scientists and bird enthusiasts to become cockatoo counters! Volunteers are needed to survey glossy black cockatoo populations at three key sites around inland NSW. These beautiful birds are listed as vulnerable in NSW, and by taking part in the Glossy Count, you will be helping scientists understand more about this threatened species.

The dates for the 2020 surveys are:

  • 7 November โ€“ Pilliga Forests
  • 14 November โ€“ Goonoo National Park
  • 21 November โ€“ Goobang National Park and surrounds

Volunteers will be stationed at one dam on their chosen weekend to count glossy black cockatoos as they come to known watering holes. What a way to spend an evening – watching these magnificent birds in their natural habitat and helping to conserve their species into the future!
