Birdlife Australia needs the help of southwest locals 

“We are seeking help from locals throughout southwest Western Australia to share their knowledge of black-cockatoos in their area.
The Southwest Black-Cockatoo Survey asks a series of questions about your observations and perceptions of cockatoo populations in the area you currently live. Even if you have only lived in your current location a short time, or feel that you don’t know much about black-cockatoos, all information is valuable, and we still encourage you to participate. So please take part in the survey and answer the questions as accurately as you can. We estimate the survey should take ten minutes to complete.”

We are interested in black-cockatoos because they are a visible part of many local landscapes throughout the southwest. As land use in our southwest environment has changed, so it is likely the birds have too. But nobody knows an area better than the people that live there, which is why we are calling on you to tell us what you know, and to share your observations of black-cockatoos in your local area.

The survey is available here:
