An iconic endangered species, Carnaby’s Cockatoos are semi-migratory, utilising the Banksia Woodlands of the Swan Coastal Plain TEC, with conservation actions delivering multiple benefits.

The Protecting WA’s Black Cockatoos project will support farmers to protect and improve the habitat of Carnaby’s Cockatoo sites within the Northern Agricultural Region (NAR).

A strong focus on community and land manager engagement will deliver strategic sites for revegetation and improved management to protect key remnant vegetation, providing opportunities to improve fledging success strengthened by hollow repairs and artificial breeding structures.

By engaging the community and supporting land managers with technical expertise, the NAR is well placed to sustain and improve forage and nesting habitat for Carnaby’s Cockatoo, quantified by monitoring known populations and surveying for undiscovered sites. This approach is aligned with the Species Recovery Plan and recognises the six broad themes of action.
