Black Cockatoo Evening

18 Aug 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5

We would like to invite you to attend our “Black Cockatoo Information Evening” to be held on Tuesday the 18th of August, at the Chittering Landcare Centre.

Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo is federally listed as an endangered species with their numbers continuing to decline.  August is the beginning of the breeding season when surveys of nesting areas are carried out.   Although Carnaby’s generally migrate further inland to the wheatbelt to breed, there are pairs which are known to breed in the Chittering and Gingin areas and there have been reports of birds looking at potential nesting hollows in the Chittering area recently.  Volunteers to assist with nesting surveys are welcome.

Come along to our Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo Evening to find out more about these wonderful birds and how you can contribute to vital research to slow the decline in their numbers.

The draft program is as follows:
6.00pm   Dinner
6.45pm   Rick Dawson   DPaW  Black Cockatoo Research – the early days
7.15pm   Geoff Barrett   DPaW  Black Cockatoo biology and ecology and current research
7.45pm   Matt Byrne   Birdlife WA  Carnaby’s nesting survey project
8.15pm   Chittering Landcare Centre’s activities and findings
9.00pm   Finish

The workshop will run from 6pm to 9pm with dinner provided. The cost for this workshop is $5, and free for members. Thanks to those who have already RSVP’d. To RSVP, please reply to this email or call – 9571 0200.

Please join us for another great workshop!
