Every April, the Great Cocky Count (GCC) counts as many Black-Cockatoos as possible across WA on a single night.
The Great Cocky Count is a long-term citizen science survey and the biggest single survey for black-cockatoos in Western Australia. On one night in autumn, volunteers monitor known roost sites and count black-cockatoos as they come in to their evening roosts. Records submitted from across the southwest provide a snapshot of black-cockatoo populations, and over time this has helped us quantify the changes in black-cockatoo numbers.
This year, the GCC is on Sunday 9 April 2017 with registrations closing on Sunday 19 March.
For more information or to register go to the Birdlife Australia website, or come along to a free information session to learn how you can participate.
