WA pest parrot and cockatoo management strategy survey

Please have your say to ensure our Black Cockatoos are not under even more threat than they already are with habitat destruction!! Too many pest species of birds takeover the nesting hollows that our black cockatoos use and this is your chance to have your say so that something is actually done about it.

Pest parrots and cockatoos are known to cause extensive damage in both rural and urban areas in Western Australia. Because of this, several species are declared pests (simply referred to as pests below) and subject to active management control. Once a species of parrot or cockatoo has been officially declared as a pest all landholders are required to control them on the land they manage.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) works with other agencies and landholders in the coordination of pest management and actively works to prevent exotic incursions into the State.

DPIRD has engaged Strickland Park Economics to assist with the development of the WA pest parrot and cockatoo strategy to guide the future management of these birds.

An important part of this work is a survey of public attitudes to the control of birds as pests, in particular declared pest parrots and cockatoos.

Information on the public's understanding of these birds, and how they should be managed, is fundamental to the development of the strategy.


This survey takes about 15 minutes to complete.
