Glossies in the Mist

Goulburn mulwaree, Shoalhaven, Upper lachlan shire, Wingecarribee, Wollondilly

Glossy Black-Cockatoos are declining in numbers as a consequence of the clearing of hollow-bearing trees and Allocasuarina species, their most important food source. The Glossies in the Mist project aims to identify key feeding trees and map nesting hollows to secure foraging and breeding habitat for the Glossy Black-Cockatoo within the Great Western Wildlife Corridor. The project relies on private landowners reporting Glossy Black-Cockatoo sightings, mapping stands of Allocasuarina, assessing cone feeding and mapping hollow-bearing trees on their properties.
