Supporting the Moore River Catchment Area

SNRMO – A17122 Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo conservation in the Moore catchment

Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus latirostris) are endemic to WA but are rapidly in decline with total population estimates to be less than 60,000.

The Moore River Catchment has 7 of the 23 designated Important Bird Areas (IBAs) that support Carnaby’s. Past and continuing clearing of Carnaby’s breeding and forage habitat is threatening their future survival.

This project aims to raise the Carnaby’s population through increasing and protecting breeding and priority forage habitat, and installing artificial breeding nests.

Community will be engaged through Carnaby’s monitoring. The project will appoint a local Working on Country Yued works crew.
