NLP 20MTR3-70 Carnaby’s habitat 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.
Unfortunately past and continuing clearing of Carnaby’s breeding and forage habitat is threatening their future survival.
This project aims to increase Carnaby’s Black Cockatoo numbers through increasing and connecting priority breeding and forage Swan Banksia woodland and Wheatbelt Eucalypt woodland habitat. Planting will take place at 7 sites on 5 farms, and include engaging a local Working on Country Yued planting team.
