Hello Cocky

If the plight of threatened animal species has you in a flap, here’s your chance to help.

The fourth annual Glossy Black-Cockatoo Birding Day on Sunday 14 October aims to unravel some of the mystery that surrounds the species’ distribution, habitat use and population demographics.

Sunshine Coast Council Environment Portfolio Councillor Tony Wellington said local volunteers could play a vital role in the event.

“The success of the Glossy Black-Cockatoo Birding Day relies on the assistance of members of the public. Community members can observe the animals and provide records of their numbers and whereabouts,” he said.

“This species is listed as threatened in Queensland so the ‘citizen scientist’ role that locals play will provide valuable information that can greatly assist Glossy Black-Cockatoo conservation efforts.”

Volunteer Glossy Black-Cockatoo enthusiasts can participate in the annual Birding Day by contacting Council's Customer Services centre on (07)5475 7272

Glossy Black-Cockatoo identification workshops will also be held at the following council offices this week:

·         9 Pelican Street, Tewantin, Wednesday 10 October, 12.30pm.
·         Cnr Currie and Bury Streets (Eddie Devere Building) Nambour Thursday 11 October, 6pm.
