2017 Great Cocky Count Information Session

Black Cockatoo

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.

Claimed Lands: The impact of colonisation on the Western Australian landscape

Claimed Lands piece

Artwork centered around the idea of our shared past, to make art that challenges the viewer and the generally accepted discourse of local history.

Jess Hart's practice is influenced by her Indigenous History and Knowledge major and interest in colonial settlement. Her artwork is centered around the idea of our shared past, to make art that challenges the viewer and the generally accepted discourse of local history. Her aim is to create a series of works that blur the line between museum and art.

This exhibition has been facilitated in partnership with Paper Mountain an artist-run initiative, Gallery and co-working space, dedicated to supporting a diverse range of contemporary art projects. Jess Hart is the University of WA’s recipient of the Artsource Industry Award 2016, an award offered to the most industry-ready graduates from the art faculties of Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, North Metropolitan (TAFE) and the University of WA. 

Pictured above: Cause and Effect, was created to represent the effects of farming on the natural landscape and how this destruction of the environment has influenced the way farmers can use their land. The salt rising from the ground, and the fires destroying the land and crops above, whilst the clearing of the gum trees to make way for crops and cattle, exacerbates the problem of salinity.
