Register now for the 2024 Great Cocky Count!

Registrations are now open for the 2024 Great Cocky Count! Help us count black-cockatoos across southwest WA as they fly into their evening roosts on Sunday 14th April at sunset. This annual citizen science survey provides essential data to estimate population trends for our threatened cockies and to help protect critical habitat. No experience is required – we provide full instructions or you can attend one of our information and training sessions (see details below). Counters are needed to cover sites from Geraldton in the north to Esperance along the south coast. Registrations close on the 24th March.

Register here today to join our volunteer flock for the 2024 Great Cocky Count!

Swoop in and attend one of our Black-Cockatoo and Great Cocky Count workshops!

Birdlife Australia will be holding free workshops around Perth and in regional centres across southwest WA in the lead up to the Great Cocky Count. The workshops will bring the world of black-cockatoos to life, identify the threats they face, and show how people can get involved in the GCC and take other actions to support black-cockatoos.

Please see the list of workshops below and follow the links for more details and for registration. More workshops and links will be added in future eNews editions as further details become available. The workshops will be hosted by local councils and conservation/Landcare groups, and presented by BirdLife Australia staff.
